A decade after filing his last reports on the mujahideen's war against the communist-backed government, and a mere two weeks after the terrorist attacks of September 11, Jon Lee Anderson became one of the first Western journalists to get into Afghanistan. Anderson stayed in the country for months, filing stories that illuminate a high-technology conflict in a feudal terrain. In The Lion's Grave these reports are supplemented by vivid first-person e-mail accounts that take the reader onto the ground and into the process of reporting the war. Distinguished by Anderson's gritty, on-the-ground observations, probing interviews, and extraordinary gift for telling a story, The Lion's Grave is war reporting in the tradition of A. J. Liebling and Michael Herr. It captures the war at its pivotal moments and crystallizes the inherent precariousness of Afghanistan's future. It is destined to become a classic.
