Snapshots of a Fading War

Dispatches from Afghanistan

The American Scholar is featuring a series of my dispatches from Afghanistan, called “Snapshots of a Fading War.”  These short, impressionistic pieces attempt to fill in some blank spaces in our view of the war, describing what happens behind and between the lines. The series began in December 2012 and ran for 14 weeks.

The first story appears here.

The series homepage is here.
