Description du produit

Revue de presse

"This is the story of the neglected war in Afghanistan. It is told not by a journalist or politician on a quick trip but by the British soldiers and airmen who actually fought there in 2006 and 2007. 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)

"James Fergusson has written a riveting, blistering, deeply reported narrative of the recent British military interventions in Afghanistan. He raises important questions about the wisdom of those ventures and the fate of Afghanistan itself, and has simultaneously written a vivid and fair account of some of the most hazardous battles British soldiers have faced in decades." (Peter Bergen, author of Holy War, Inc. and The Osama bin Laden I Know)

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?

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.

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?
