Abstract

Follows the experiences of four women who fought in active combat duty in Afghanistan and also worked to gather intelligence about the Taliban from local Afghani women, with whom they were able to cultivate relationships, unlike their male counterparts. Rivers follows the experiences of women who fought in active combat duty in Afghanistan, fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with the men. They also worked to gather intelligence about the Taliban from local Afghani women, with whom they were able to cultivate relationships, since the women were bound by tradition not to speak with American military men. -- adapted from jacket
