Summary
"Inspired by Alexander Solzhenitsyn's novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, Taliban Safari describes a long, exhausting day in June of 2009, when US Army Major Paul Darling set off with two teams on a mission to track down and kill Taliban insurgents in the Zabul Province of southeastern Afghanistan. Darling describes the mundane realties of deployed life--waiting, heat, heavy gear, food--along with the challenges: gaining the trust of the Afghans with whom he fights; adapting to an unfamiliar culture; pursuing an elusive and poorly organized enemy; and providing leadership in sometimes chaotic conditions"--
