Reviews

"Drawing upon his skills as a trained soldier and accomplished historian, Maloney provides a perceptive, firsthand account of NATO and American military operations at the cutting edge in Afghanistan. His is a cautionary tale--much has been accomplished in the war on terrorism, but serious obstacles to long-term regional stability remain. Anyone involved in the war on terror--and who isn't?--will profit from Maloney's insights and observations." --Peter S. Kindsvatter, command historian at the U.S. Army Ordnance Center and Schools and author of AMERICAN SOLDIERS: GROUND COMBAT IN THE WORLD WARS, KOREA, AND VIETNAM Drawing upon his skills as a trained soldier and accomplished historian, Maloney provides a perceptive, firsthand account of NATO and American military operations at the cutting edge in Afghanistan. His is a cautionary tale much has been accomplished in the war on terrorism, but serious obstacles to long-term regional stability remain. Anyone involved in the war on terror and who isn t? will profit from Maloney s insights and observations." A vivid yet insightful view of what the Global War on Terror really means in Afghanistan s unforgiving mountains and churning cities. Sean Maloney s combination of on-the-ground experience in Afghanistan and his background as an experienced military historian and analyst bring real insight to a fascinating and strategically vital situation. It has been a new world since 9/11, and Sean Maloney has expertly chronicled a part of it. This is history written from the front line, not the academic desk, by a Canadian with much experience of the emerging nature of conflict worldwide. Sean Maloney is one of my favorite observers of the contemporary geopolitical scene. He is that rarest of academic creatures a fun read. He is direct, uncompromising, brilliant, and takes no prisoners. "Enduring the Freedom" . . . is a super book.
