Following the events of September 11, 2001, these cave systems have once more come to prominence and sites such as Tora Bora and Zhawar Kili have featured in news headlines around the world.

Reviews of Afghanistan Cave Complexes 1979-2004: Mountain Strongholds of the Mujahideen, Taliban & Al Qaeda

Overall customer rating: 4.000
ryefish

Insightful, but not necessarily scholarly.

by ryefish on Apr 3, 2007

This book, as I understand it, is more of a guide for historians and scale modelers than a critical military analysis or historical record. I appreciate the work that author Mir Bahmanyar has both written and compiled. The renderings by Ian Palmer deserve credit for aiding in the basic visual understanding of complexes found in the region. I would never expect any book with less than 70 pages to provide the material some reviewers seem to demand. Additionally, this book should not be considered a substitute for military manuals, to do so would starve operational personnel in the theater of volumes of additional classified information. Good book, great information in BRIEF, valuable pictures and supplemental research material. Review every book you read, Authors deserve your opinions!
