David Fraser provides an excellent overview of the battle that defined the pivotal battle against the Taliban in 2006. He should know, as the Major-General who lead the forces into the fray. Fraser's style is straight forward and makes for a compelling read. No matter where you stand in relation to Canada's role in Afghanistan, you owe it to yourself to hear from the commander and staff who risked their lives on the ground, in a battle that took 159 Canadian lives.
