5.0 out of 5 stars Historical context, adventure travel and coming of age, all in one
By Michelle Redo on October 5, 2021
This book is equal parts a multifaceted Afghanistan history offering valuable insight to the country's status today, a ride-along adventure story from Kabul up and through the mountain range called the Hindu Kush, and candid personal history.

It's an on-the-ground scene-setter from waning days of Afghanistan's communist-backed regime. What's unique about Woolf's story is his military and journalist background gave him enough expertise to undertake a journey to Afghanistan in the waning days of the communist-backed government, while simultaneously being naive enough to undertake a journey to Afghanistan in the waning days of communist-backed government! What results is an endearing candor, and the courage to reveal his resulting trauma from the experience 30 years later.

5.0 out of 5 stars An insightful look at surviving in a war zone
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 26, 2021
Chris Woolf relates a visit to a BBC colleague in Kabul in 1991 to see if his army training prepares him for a real war. It doesn’t but he discovers as much about himself as about the beautiful and benighted land of Afghanistan. A rattling good read.
