Synopsis

On April 16th 2010, Michael Hastings spent the night in Kitty O'Shea's Irish pub in Paris with General Stanley McChrystal and his handpicked inner circle. By midnight they were all three sheets to the wind, linking arms and chanting 'Afghanistan!' at the top of their lungs. It was day two of what would turn out to be an extraordinary month. Soon after Hastings flew to Afghanistan with McChrystal. Over the weeks that followed he was privy to everything the General and his team did and saw, including unguarded opinions of the President, of General Petraeus, of Hamid Karzai. 'The Runaway General' piece in Rolling Stone that resulted caused a sensation around the world and led directly to McChrystal's dismissal. In the tradition of CATCH-22, PRIMARY COLORS of APOCALYPSE NOW, this landmark book reveals the craziness behind the scenes at the highest level. But it's all true. A landmark piece of reporting.
