Reviews

"Frank Holt...narrates [Alexander's] struggle in clear prose that makes this ancient campaign come alive and gives greater appreciation for the challenges that confront all counterinsurgents in Afghanistan-including the U.S. troops still fighting there more than a decade after 9/11." Wall Street Journal
