Description

A thrilling true story of courage and duty after 9/11-"an extraordinary read from cover to cover . . . Gritty, frustrating, brutal, exhilarating" (Midwest Book Review). Within hours after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001, ex-Green Beret Duane Evans began a personal quest to become part of the US response against al-Qa'ida. His determination led him to join one of the CIAs elite teams bound for Afghanistan. It was a journey that eventually took him to the front lines in Pakistan-first as part of the advanced element of a CIA group supporting President Hamid Karzai, and finally as leader of the under-resourced and often overlooked Foxtrot team. Evans's mission was to venture into southern Afghanistan, where the Taliban and al-Qa'ida held sway, and try to organize a cohesive resistance among the fractious warlords and tribal leaders. He traveled in the company of Pashtun warriors-one of only a handful of Americans pushing forward across the desert into some of the most dangerous, yet mesmerizingly beautiful, landscape on earth. Brilliantly crafted and fast-paced, Foxtrot in Kandahar "dramatically reports the huge challenges and exceptional success of [Evans's] and his brothers' work in Afghanistan defeating the Taliban and Al-Qaeda in nine weeks" (Ambassador Cofer Black, former director, Counterterrorist Center, CIA).
