Apr 12, Rabie rated it it was amazing. A very well written memoir that accurately depicts the life and struggles of the Afghan Mujahideen during Afghan-Soviet War.
It is not only entertaining but also educational. After reading this book, you can understand the Afghanistan of today and the struggles that we are still going through.
Common but grave misconceptions are cleared and one can truly appreciate the sacrifices of civilians and the fighters, that they gave to remain free. This book made me realise that very heavy pri Marvellous! This book made me realise that very heavy price is to be paid if the wrong decisions are made by the people with authority. Pakistan made mistakes after mistakes then, and we are still paying the price.
And now again we are facing similar crisis and still mistakes are being made. We can just hope for the best and do what we can in our meager capacities. Feb 14, Awais rated it it was amazing.

These fighters were the darlings of the West at the time,particularly of the US,as they fought the Soviets. Many of them are buried on Afghanistan. Many of them would be involved in terrorist attacks in Pakistan. Many would make the tribal areas their base of operations. Now,they would no longer be the blue eyed boys of the US. It was certainly a more interesting account than I expected,the author's controversial views and his exaggerated sense of his own importance notwithstanding.
The battle scenes are worth reading. Jul 24, Naved rated it it was amazing. This book is a must read for everyone who wants to understand Afghanistan, the current war, and Global super powers at play.
