Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"The lessons drawn by James Fergusson are deeply uncomfortable; but his account cannot be ignored by anyone seriously interested in the future of the British armed forces" (Douglas Hurd)

"a riveting, blistering, deeply reported narrative of the recent British military interventions in Afghanistan" (Peter Bergen, author of Holy War, Inc.)

"If you read anything on Afghanistan this year, then read this strong, intelligent book of crafted anger and insight" (Anthony Loyd)

"Fascinating... Succeeds brilliantly in detailing the emotional impact on soldiers killing for the first time and seeing comrades killed" (The Sunday Times)

"The only thoughtful and informed book to come out of the UK's venture into Helmand" (Frank Ledwidge Royal United Services Institute Journal)

Présentation de l'éditeur

In April 2006 a small British peace-keeping force was sent to Helmand province in southern Afghanistan. Within weeks they were cut off and besieged by some of the world's toughest fighters: the infamous Taliban, who were determined to send the foreigners home again. Defence Secretary John Reid had hoped that Operation Herrick 4 could be accomplished without a shot being fired; instead, the Army was drawn into the fiercest fighting it had seen for fifty years. Millions of bullets and thousands of lives have been expended since then in an under-publicized but bitter conflict whose end is still not in sight. Some people consider it the fourth Anglo-Afghan War since Victorian times. How on earth did this happen? And what is it like for the troops on the front line of the 'War on Terror'?


James Fergusson takes us to the dark heart of the battle zone. Here, in their own words and for the first time, are the young veterans of Herrick 4. Here, unmasked, are the civilian and military officials responsible for planning and executing the operation. Here, too, are the Taliban themselves, to whom Fergusson gained unique and extraordinary access. Controversial, fascinating and occasionally downright terrifying, A Million Bullets analyses the sorry slide into war in Helmand and asks this most troubling question: could Britain perhaps have avoided the violence altogether?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 am I really first to review 22 septembre 2012

Format:Broché
I find that hard to believe. Very well written book by James Fergusson, I read it a couple of years ago and have read quite a few other books on Afghanistan. I met James at a pub in Stockbridge to ask him a bit more about the book. I feel he slightly pulled his punches - he clearly didn't admire the behaviour or the judgement of all who he saw. Reading it I can well imagine what he found to be disappointing and I don't think it suprised me. I admit that I am biassed but I served alongside the RRF many years ago and I think they are great. Tough, gritty soldiers, when called on they get the job done. The truth is, they were not given anything like the recognition they deserved and the senior ranks who were in charge there owe an answer for that. They won't have to answer of course but when they wear their own decorations, they should question the fair distribution of the recognition. In a UK culture of limited decortaions, relative choices need to be made: who's chest the medals should be on?

good if you are into war stories. wonderful to hear the Brit perspective. The whole thing is quite a mess and this gets at the heart of it while not betraying the soldiers involved.

I feel that this author didn't exaggerate anything but told everything the way it is and gave a real incite to what is going on in Afghanistan, thoroughly readable.
