Reviews

`The clearest, best informed, and most honest account yet of why and how Britain was drawn deeper and deeper into the Afghan war, by the man who knows more about it than just about anyone else. If you want to understand what really happened, you absolutely have to read this book.'John Simpson `Unquestionably the most important record yet of the diplomatic wrangling that has accompanied the slow military encirclement of western forces in Afghanistan. Extraordinary' William Dalrymple, Observer `Vividly portrays the plight of an envoy who really cared about his brief, and felt unable to keep silent about looming failure in a vital region where western intervention has been bungled' Max Hastings, Sunday Times `A highly readable and witty account by one of our most dynamic and impressive diplomats' Daily Telegraph `A supremely urbane, frustrated and brilliant valedictory diagnosis of the problems of Afghanistan's recent past' Sunday Telegraph "In my experience our former Ambassador in Afghanistan Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles is spot on in his book Cables from Kabul" Matthew Parris, The Times "Outstanding" Julian Glover, Guardian "This is a wonderful book" Spectator `a gripping account of failed efforts at politics and peacemaking in that troubled country...eminently readable' The Tablet
