Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001
Based on extensive firsthand accounts, 'Ghost Wars' is the inside story that goes well beyond anything previously published on U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, chronicling the roles of midlevel CIA officers, their Afghan allies, and such top spy masters as Bill Casey, Saudi Arabia's Prince Turki al Faisal, and George Tenet; heated debates within the American government; and the often poisonous, mistrustful relations between the CIA and foreign intelligence agencies.

I read this whilst living in North-Western India and not far from the geographic centre of the book's topic. This is a really amazing historical account of the United State's influence in the Middle-East, the confluence of which resulted in all out war in Afghanistan. Read full review
