Top-rate journalism from an observer who spends a considerable amount of time with men in the most dangerous part of Afghanistan. Junger hasn't tried to write about the politics of the situation. He simply describes, to great effect, what these soldiers are enduring, what motivates them, and what they feel. It's rather shock to learn that the larger objectives of winning/losing, whatever that means in this context, has little interest for these guys.
