The explosive first-hand account of America's secret history in Afghanistan
With the publication of Ghost Wars, Steve Coll became not only a Pulitzer Prize winner, but also the expert on the rise of the Taliban, the emergence of Bin Laden, and the secret efforts by CIA officers and their agents to capture or kill Bin Laden in Afghanistan after 1998.
Amazing book with a great reader but format issue
Ghost Wars is one of my all time favorite books. I listen to it when I work out, cook, or just get bored. Its a highly informative and detailed examination of the CIA’s involvement in Afghanistan, but it reads like an action novel. Coll makes foreign policy exciting and energizing. Great book.
…. BUT…. For some reason when I listen to this version on my iPhone it skips occasionally and without warning. Every now and then the book will jump a head as little as a few sentences to 1/2 a chapter at one instance. Not sure if this is a version issue or maybe a phone issue but every line in this book is important and jumping ahead can make things confusing.
Hard to understand, so many stories mixed in one.
