The story definitely potrays, in my opinion, the chaos, confusion and incompetence of the war in Afghanistan today. I feel that it is done well. The utter chaos that Mitchell goes through is well done, the characters are excellent.
It's a very intense thriller of war and it's a definate must read.
Captain Harruck's team is there to win the hearts and minds of the locals. Captain Mitchell and his Ghost Recon team is there to assassinate Mullah Mohammed Zahed, the vicious Zhari district Taliban commander, and overlord of Sangsar. But, intimidation aside, the locals seem to prefer Zahed over the legitimate Afghan government.
Many of the situations Harruck and Mitchell encounter (how the U.S. army pays the Taliban for logistics support and those infamous Poppy Palaces) are right out of current newspaper articles and various white paper reports. The treatment of women as chattel is played out right down to its tragic consequences.
Through Mitchell's eyes we follow two young army captains as they confront these issues, discharge their duties, and narrowly avoid killing each other.
From Clancy I expect action and there's plenty of it here. But there's no denying this is a dark, provocative study, a thinking person's plot, maybe even an important story with a lasting message.
James Ide, The Nintoku Incident
It's been years since I read the first of the series, but I recall it was much truer to Clancy's style. I'm not sure I'll continue with this series.
