For readers of War by Sebastian Junger, We Wish to
Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families
by Philip Gourevitch, and The Forever War by Dexter
Filkins: The Dogs Are Eating Them Now is a raw, uncensored
account of the war in Afghanistan from a brilliant young reporter
who for several years was the only Western journalist brave enough
to live full-time in the dangerous southern region.
The Dogs are Eating Them Now is a highly personal narrative of
our war in Afghanistan and how it went dangerously wrong. Written
by a respected and fearless former foreign correspondent who has
won multiple awards for his journalism (including an Emmy for the
video series "Talking with the Taliban") this is a gripping account
of modern warfare that takes you into back alleys, cockpits and

the frequent blunders of foreign troops, this is the
no-holds-barred story from a leading expert on the insurgency.
Smith draws on his unmatched compassion and a rare ability to cut
through the noise and see the broader truths to give us a bold and
candid look at the Taliban''s continued influence--and at the
mistakes, catastrophes and ultimate failure of the West''s best
