WINTER IN KANDAHAR
A gripping epic about events that shape our time. It is both timely and enlightening.
AFGHANISTAN The name conjures images of rugged mountains, ancient cities, hardened Mujaheddin, a country rife with regional rivalries, and the eternal struggle between Tajik and Pashtun. Afghanistan comes to life in this epic adventure of love, betrayal, and war. Young Tajik Ahmed Jan’s heroic journey begins in the Northern Alliance stronghold near Taloqan just a month prior to the 9/11 conspiracy. He is swept away by the chaos that soon engulfs the country before a chance discovery propels him to the forefront of the clash between civilizations. Pursued by both the CIA and al Qaeda, he struggles to save his people from obliteration and find the true meaning of life in a land where all seems lost.
This 464 page book is destined to be a classic in the genre of Lawrence of Arabia and The English Patient.
