Sangin - A Glance through Afghan Eyes
by Toby Woodbridge
The British Army handed over responsibility for Sangin District to US Marines in late 2010. Set in the heart of Afghanistan's Helmand Province, UK forces left that troubled town after four bloody years fighting against a determined and ruthless insurgent threat. This is the story of Sangin as it was in the summer of 2009, told from a foreigner's perspective, but seen through Afghan Eyes.
