Noah Coburn spoke to BTWBerkshires about his new book, Losing Afghanistan: An Obituary for the Intervention, recently published by Stanford University Press, and his longtime work in that country studying the effects and conditions of war.

In Losing Afghanistan Coburn enters development, diplomatic and military worlds, focusing on four people: three men he refers to by pseudonyms for their protection — a Navy SEAL, a young Afghan businessman and a wind energy engineer — and Ambassador Ronald Neumann.
