Book review: No Worse Enemy

No Worse Enemy is Ben Anderson’s account of his visits to Afghanistan and being embedded with army units from Britain and America. In his accounts, he gives the views of the soldiers he is embedded with as well as the citizens of Afghanistan they encounter.

Anderson shows the difficulty faced by the soldiers with the rules of engagement they have and the dangers of IEDs. Anderson also shows the difficulties faced by the Afghan population, with buildings being destroyed around them. This is an excellent account of what the situation was like in Helmand Province in Afghanistan because it looks to show the problems faced by both the soldiers and the local population.
