The Wrong War by Bing West, an assistant Defense secretary under Reagan and author of acclaimed military books, is a realistic account of why our strategy in Afghanistan has not achieved a satisfactory outcome. West’s descriptions of his time spent with the troops on the battlefield show the courage of our troops and the weakness of our idealistic theories of counterinsurgency.
