Published in time for the tenth anniversary of the Afghan war, this explosive book exposes how the West lost its chance to rout the Taliban and stabilise Afghanistan. In late 2001, a group of Afghan tribal leaders met to plan how to topple the Taliban. Within weeks the plan was in tatters, thwarted by the West, and the group's leader, Abdul Haq, assassinated by the Taliban. Lucy Morgan Edwards's investigation into Haq's tragic mission led her to Taliban ministers, warlords, spies and two American Republican brothers who financed Haq's venture. Based on the author's own experience of the war in Afghanistan, this book reveals how a solution to the war was lost and why it matters today.
