Summary

The September 11, 2001, terror attacks orchestrated by al-Qaeda prompted the United States to declare a "War on Terror." When the Taliban government of Afghanistan refused to extradite al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, an American-led coalition went to war with Afghanistan, overthrowing the Taliban government. However, the coalition did not capture bin Laden and all of his followers, so the battle against the terrorists continued, while a war-torn and ravaged Afghanistan struggled to rebuild.

Afghanistan War, Second Edition features an account of the battles, weapons, tactics, and people involved in this conflict. Complete with full-color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations, full-color maps, and other further resources, Afghanistan War, Second Edition is suited for middle and high school students seeking unbiased information about U.S. military history.
