Tom Carew (au). A true account of combat espionage & high adventure. Sheds light on the conduct of special oper. in the modern era. In 1980, in the NW frontier of Afghanistan & the Hindu Kush, the CIA & its Western allies saw an opportunity to bring the Soviet army to its knees. Their weapon: the Islamic guerrillas of the Mujahideen. Their agent: Tom Carew, a British soldier with a talent for ‘black bag’ covert oper. Carew, the first western agent to link up with the Mujahideen, led a series of daring initiatives inside Afghanistan. Here he covers combat action against the Soviets & Afghan mercenaries; missions leading to the installation of the first Western-sponsored training camp in Pakistan; & Carew’s attempt to hijack an aircraft during a covert arms-buying mission.
