A crisis resulted due to the hasty departure of the US from Afghanistan. Other things that added to the chaos include the withdrawal of military personnel before the evacuation of civilians and the lack of coordination with the Afghan forces and other partners. Chad had already served for several years in Afghanistan before leaving the military after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. During his years in Afghanistan, Aziz had proven to be more than just an interpreter. He was a friend, and he had even saved Chad's life more than once. To find out how Chad saved Aziz, the establishment of Save Our Allies, and the impact of the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan and how it gave the Taliban the upper hand, read Saving Aziz by Chad Robichaux, David L. Thomas, and Glenn Beck.
Saving Aziz: How the Mission to Help One Became a Calling to Rescue Thousands from the Taliban by Chad Robichaux, David L. Thomas, and Glenn Beck is wonderfully written with a unique perspective on the Afghanistan war that was not captured by the media or the government. This thought-provoking work got me thinking about how the withdrawal and the mission were impacted by politicians, most of whom didn't know what exactly was happening on the ground. I loved the military point of view and how the book covered the Afghan allies who were committed to fighting for the freedom of their country. The steady pacing and the excellent narration added to the overall appeal. Readers will also appreciate the vivid descriptions of events and emotions, which help capture the reader's imagination.
