Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"This program offers an intimate look at a country with a punishing geography, archaic society, and a landscape already worn-torn." --The New York Times

In an unprecedented event, National Geographic goes deep into Afghanistan to bring back a vivid portrait of the tumultuous country that is no longer accessible to journalists and filmmakers. Features in-depth interviews with the late afghan resistance leader Ahmad Shad Massoud, who was assassinated two days before the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States. Includes exclusive interviews with Taliban soldiers being held by the Northern Alliance. Looks at refugees who speak plainly of their suffering from the effects of Taliban rule and the decrees that are especially harsh for women. With never-before-seen footage, Afghanistan Revealed is a harrowing journey into the heart of resistance and into the lives of the people as they continue their struggle against the Taliban.

I strongly recommend this video to anyone that would like to learn about what was going on in Afghanistan prior to September 11th. Author Sebastian Junger & the famous photographer Reza are both in this film. We are introduced to Ahmed Shah Massoud-Afghanistan's last hope, who was mortally wounded a few days before America was attacked by the terrorists. Mr. Massoud tried to warn the world of what was to come, but no one cared to listen. I was deeply moved by this
documentary.

If you are looking for a National Geographic Special about the people, land or culture of Afghanistan...this ISN'T it. Instead, this is an interesting take on the endless war of Afghanistan, and the ultimate martyrdom of a great leader, Ahmed Shah Massou, the 'Lion of Panjshir'.

I have ordered this tape because I have seen the show on the National Geogrphic Channel and was very impressed with the bravery displayed and insight gained by both journalists into Massoud's struggle.

As a result I have been very impressed with Massoud's achievements, his nature and charisma and have been deeply sadend by his murder. One of the unparalleled individuals in history.

So if you want to learn more about Ahmad Shah Massoud and the historical run-up to his struggle, this documentary is very good.
