No other country has been through so many wars as Afghanistan. It's eventful past therefore has inspired every serious writer to contemplate upon some phase of history of this country. This book covers the period of the first three years of the new millennium. The book is in four parts. The first part is a reflection on the momentous period of the author tenure as Military Attache in Afghanistan and narrates some of the most interesting anecdotes of his assignment. The second part touches those aspects that help in understanding why Afghanistan despite it being so underdeveloped and war ravaged, has so much significance and explains how its terrain has been a friend to its inhabitants but an obstacles to the outsiders.The third part part recollects the events of Operation Infinite Freedom, makes an assessment of the spectacular victory over the formidable adversary the Taliban and analyses the response of the USA and its allies with particular reference to India and Pakistan. The fourth part is probably the most interesting as it endeavours an understanding of the challenges faced by Afghanistan in its resurgence and answers some very legitimate questions about the future of the country.
