Summary
Memoir of the Pakistani brigadier general who organized and directed the training of the Mujahideen in secret camps within his own country, and covertly sent Pakistan Army teams inside Soviet occupied Afghanistan in the 1980s to assist the guerrilla's in their campaign of ambushes, assassinations, raids, and rocket attacks. This was the campaign that forced the Soviets to realize that they could never win. He is, in fact, as the book demonstrates, the only general since the Second World War to have directed troops in action within the Soviet Union's own borders
