A stunning, point-blank, no-holds-barred indictment of Karzai and American counterinsurgency failure in Afghanistan, TAKING DOWN AL QAEDA IN THE HINDU KUSH is not only the first work to get to the root of Petreaus' counterinsurgency folly in Afghanistan, it is the only book that lays out a counterterrorism strategy for defeating Al Qaeda, a strategy that is rooted in Muslim counterterrorists' success since September 11th. Mike Tucker, who has been compared to Hemingway by top British foreign correspondent Miles Amoore of THE SUNDAY TIMES, has also been hailed by that great foreign correspondent as the best writer on war of his generation: "Tucker's knowledge of the military and of special operations is unrivalled among modern authors - he spent time in the military and with elite fighting units in both Afghanistan and Iraq." Mike Tucker, who was the only author under fire with both Delta Force and SEAL Team 6 counterterrorists after September 11th and is also the only author of his generation compared to Hemingway, reveals completely-exclusive special operations raids and missions in Afghanistan in 2009 in this fascinating book, including his first-hand account of a Joint Special Operations Command counterterrorist team in Afghanistan. Wounded at 10,000 feet in the Hindu Kush with SEAL Team 6 counterterrorists on a mission taking down Al Qaeda, Mike Tucker survived to write this incisive, provocative and compelling account of the guerrilla war in Afghanistan in 2009 that is woven-through with scintillating words from the field from counterterrorists, Afghan spies, American light infantrymen, scouts and snipers. Essential reading for anyone who wants to know why counterinsurgency failed in Afghanistan and how America and the world can take down Al Qaeda, for good and for keeps.
