A follow-up to Losing Small Wars, this book analyses the cost - both financial and human - of Britain's involvement in the Afghanistan war. It pieces together the enormous burden the Afghan intervention has placed on the shoulders of British soldiers and their families, UK taxpayers and - by far the greatest sufferers - Afghan civilians.
