Want to understand the disaster that is the war in Afghanistan? Anna Badkhen’s extraordinary account of a year in Northern Afghanistan is a travel guide to a conflict that has raged for the last decade, with little end in sight.

Badkhen, a courageous war correspondent, decided to embed not with American troops but with the Afghan people in 2011. Throughout the year, she returns again and again to the country, traveling by foot, by taxi – and even by donkey – to the remote villages and hamlets of the Afghan North, reporting as the Taliban take over large swaths of territory and also on the unimaginable daily hardships of life in a place where even such basics as water, electricity, a doctor, and a working school are impossible luxuries. It’s a place so remote that even the death of Osama bin Laden barely registers, where war is taken as a fact of life, along with the rituals of mourning and celebration that Badkhen is allowed to witness up close. As bestselling author Peter Bergen says in the accompanying introduction to the ebook, a special collaboration of Foreign Policy magazine and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, it is “a bleak tale told by an expert storyteller.”

This is the story of her year, a year in the life of a war that will not die.

5.0 von 5 Sternen haunting, brilliant 20. April 2012
Von Daniel Ford - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an astonishingly fine piece of reporting, about the war as seen in the isolated villages of northern Afghanistan. The author has a gift for language like no other journalist I have ever read--well, perhaps the young Hemingway. The people and the landscape rise from the page in front of my eyes. It's a short book, an easy read, but one you will never forget. It's based on her dispatches, mostly written in 2011, so there is duplication, but so well phrased that it never becomes tiresome. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compelling material 30. Mai 2012
Von Sophic - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A rather short book that felt more like a series of columns, with quite a few facts being mentioned repeatedly (NATO money doesn't make it to little villages in Northern Afghanistan, got it). The material was compelling but also heartbreaking and more than a little depressing, since it makes the case that with or without NATO's "assistance" the people of Northern Afghanistan are pretty much up a creek without a paddle. For anyone who wants a better understanding of how this country functions at the village level, this is a great place to start.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Afghanistan inside out 18. April 2012
Von John Tirman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Anna Badkhen has consistently and for several years been writing the most interesting dispatches from Afghanistan (and elsewhere), "interesting" both for their authenticity and for their wisdom. She's been there, and talked into the night with Afghans ordinary and not so ordinary, and the other camp followers of this decade-long conflict. What's more, her prose is elegaic, funny, inspiring -- sometimes all at once. To say this is rare is a colossal understatement. Congrats to FP among others for enabling this extraordinary journalism. Read this and see what journalism can be at its best.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Afghanistan by Donkey 5. Oktober 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent window into the lives of Afghanistan people whom we seldom hear about in the press and how the war effects their lives. The author demonstrates wonderful empathy, courage, and insight into a an ancient culture barren of all the modern conveniences that can be taken for granted. She also illustrates the tremendous amount of suffering that war rains down on people just trying to live a day at a time in their remote villages.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Afghanistan By Donkey 15. Juni 2014
Von Susan P. Raybon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Enjoyed the journey. Insight into the lives of common Afghan people and a knowledge that with or without the help or hindrance of outsiders, the country is destined to remain unchanged. Afghanistan's potential for greatness will never be realized due to ignorance of the masses. Ann Badkhen paints and interesting and insightful picture. Often her flaunting of '$50 dollar" words took away from the pace of the read.
