Horse Soldiers of Afghanistan

A new book is out entitled "Horse Soldiers" by Doug Stanton. It chronicles the activities of Green Berets of the 5th Special Forces Group and members of the Central Intelligence Agency's paramilitary branch who secretly slipped into Afghanistan just after 9/11 in 2001. Their mission was to aid the Northern Alliance, a group of Afghans opposed to the Taliban, in capturing northern Afghanistan. The mission was so successful that the entire country was quickly taken from the Taliban. Read a book review by the Sunday Book Review of The New York Times and a book review by MSNBC.
