Daniel R. Green - In the Warlords' Shadow: Special Operations Forces, the Afghans, and Their Fight Against the Taliban

Upcoming Event
Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 3:00 pm

Green is a Defense Fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy and, as a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve, has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. His experiences in Anbar Province served as the basis for Fallujah Redux, and his new book also blends memoir, reportage, and analysis for a rare insider’s account of how U.S. Army Special Operations Forces (SOF) defeated the Taliban in the southern Afghan province of Uruzgan. The site of a Pashtun uprising against the Taliban in 2001, Uruzgan became the proving-ground for the U.S. forces’ innovative Village Stability/Afghan Local Police initiative in 2010. In a dynamic narrative history, Green recounts the development, implementation, and success of this program, which depended on SOF and Navy SEAL teams embedding with villagers to fight both the political and military segments of the Taliban.
