Book review

No Regrets is a sometimes humorous and irreverent look at the war in Afghanistan from a different voice and perspective -- a defense contractor. A year and half after the Twin Towers fell in New York City, the author, Dave, found himself in Bagram, Afghanistan working for KBR—the notorious Halliburton defense contractor. Over the next decade, Dave traveled across Afghanistan as part of the U.S.-led military campaign “Operation Enduring Freedom.” During that time, he finagled his way into a position as senior advisor and mentor for Afghan colonels and generals in the western region of Afghanistan. Shona ba Shona (side-by-side) with the Afghan police and the Coalition military forces, Dave Kaelin and the men and women with whom he worked strove to build the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) into a professional military command capable of defending and protecting the nation and the people of Afghanistan. Along the way, Dave navigates through challenging cultural minefields, sells the U.S. Army on its own programs, and finds maniacal cures for the boredom of a war zone as the military decides how to proceed with the Afghanistan drawdown.

The author tells his tale. It is up to the reader to decide the morality and worthiness of the US Invasion of Afghanistan.

This book will enlighten, enrage and make you laugh. It's a first hand account of one person's experience in the Stan. The author is opinionated and blasphemous. Some will leave the book feeling like we are wasting our time and resources in the Stan. Others will see some truth to our efforts therein.

No Regrets has been reviewed favorably and enjoyed by a History Professor at Georgetown University and a former British Ambassador to the Soviet Union.
