Outstanding. Depressing. Valuable.

The Outpost by Jake Tapper stands next to The Forever War by Dexter Filkins as a must-read for citizens wanting to know about the terrain, culture, peoples, and complexities of the war in Afghanistan. In turns haunting, inspiring (Rob Yllescas), frustrating, bewildering, and depressing, Tapper presents a stiff dose of reality with outstanding attention to detail and professional writing skill. I am indebted to Jake Tapper for researching and writing this important slice of American history in a manner that reveals both the power and honor among brothers in arms and the the complexities of cultures on a distant continent.
