Near Fine. Post World War II-General The author has covered the struggle against Islamic extremism in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran for the New York Times. He was embedded with marines during the struggle for Fallujah, and in Kabul he witnessed the amputation of a pickpocket's hand and execution of an accused murderer by the Taliban. He interviewed Ahmad Shah Massoud, the Lion of Panjshir, who would later be assassinated by al-Qaeda. In Iraq Filkins accompanied American troops searching a Sunni village for insurgents, where their insensitivity probably creates more enemies than they capture. This is an uncorrected proof copy.
