Canada in Afghanistan: The War So Far by Peter Pigott

It has been said that Canada is a country with too much geography and too little history. Afghanistan has too much of both. As the war escalates in Afghanistan, more Canadians are asking what we are doing there. For a country that has specialised in peacekeeping, this war is a shock -- one that we have not yet comprehended. As the casualties mount, Canadians will want to know why we are there. Canada in Afghanistan introduces readers to Afghans and their culture, gives historical background from our involvement since 9/11, and covers operations casualties and the results. Also included is an examination of a new strategic experiment -- the provincial reconstruction team and the technological advances used in this war. Cautionary predictions conclude the book. This is an introduction to what is happening in Afghanistan and what we can expect up to 2009.|Canada in Afghanistan introduces readers to Afghans and their culture, gives historical background from our involvement since 9/11, and covers operations casualties and the results.
