Ghosts in Afghanistan by Natalie Dubois, Julian Sher and Graeme Smith
The war in Afghanistan has raged for 20 years. Suicide bombings, bombings and kidnappings have claimed the lives of nearly 200,000 people. Today, the United States and its allies - including Germany - have withdrawn their troops. The Taliban are back in power and the pressure on the civilian population is high. GHOSTS OF AFGHANISTAN reveals the true face of the "eternal war", gives an insight into the longest and most costly conflict in NATO's history, questions the role of the West and shows a country torn apart.
