In the summer of 2006, Canadian army patrol Charlie Company stumbled into a massive group of Taliban forces. The Canadians found themselves up against opponents who were suicidally brave, cunning at planting mines and roadside bombs, and experienced at disappearing into the scenery. Based on author Chris Wattie’s own experiences in Afghanistan, as well as hundreds of post-tour interviews with the men and women on the ground, Contact Charlie documents the series of battles between Taliban and Canadian forces in a dramatic account of the conflict that made headlines that summer — and continues to do so today.
