Description

Army Special Forces Major Jim Gant changed the face of America's war effort in Afghanistan. A decorated Green Beret who spent years in the Middle East training indigenous fighters, he argued for embedding autonomous units with tribes across Afghanistan to earn the Afghans' trust and transform them into a reliable ally to defeat the Taliban. The military's top brass approved, and Gant was tasked with implementing his controversial strategy. Veteran war correspondent Ann Scott Tyson first spoke with Gant in 2007. Spending time with him, she began to share his vision. Risking her life, she accompanied him to Afghanistan to cover the story. And then they fell in love.
