#MondayBook 📖

Today marks 🇦🇫 #Afghanistan’s 100th #IndependenceDay 🇦🇫 and we would like to share again with you our President, Ambassador Minuto Rizzo's book “The Road to Kabul”.

As NATO's #DeputySecretaryGeneral when the #Alliance’s operation in the country first began in 2003, he has been a privileged observer of its start, the complicated decision making on the strategy and its up and downs.

The volume offers an uncommon overall scenario of the #crisis and retraces the steps of an unprecedented effort of the international community to help #reconstruct the complex and fragile architecture of the #Afghan state. Moreover, going beyond the political and military dimensions, the author also provides the reader with a wider picture of the country's #culture, #history and #people.
