Summary Lieutenant Colonel Bogart, with the help of other Army Special Forces members, has authored an insightful monograph about conducting a counterinsurgency (COIN) campaign in Afghanistan. Through the operational lens of Special Operations Forces (SOF) in their 2004 campaign against the Taliban and their Al Qaeda supporters, "One Valley" details the accomplishments of Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force-Afghanistan (CJSOTF-A) 76. Bogart's work shares the experiences and perspectives of SOF planners as they developed their COIN strategy and organized to conduct the campaign. This planners' viewpoint -- a slice of perspective in the ongoing Long War -- provides valuable insight. The work describes the operational and tactical successes of brave SOF warriors working with their Afghan and other coalition partners. With the advantage of hindsight, one hopes the work of CJSOTF-A 76 will stand the test of time as the recent resurgence of Taliban operations in the summer of 2006 indicates clearly the need to continue the fight. Chapters are as follows: (1) Introduction; (2) The True Believer, the Enemy At Large; (3) Tenets of War in Afghanistan and the Afghan Resistance; (4) Historic Paralleling and Principles of COIN Campaigning; (5) Optimizing Command, Control, and Coordination in a COIN Environment; (6) Combat Operations in Afghanistan: Find, Fix, and Finish the Enemy and Remove the Causes of Instability; (7) Civil-Military Operations (CMO) in COIN; and (8) Results Achieved, Key Lessons Learned, and the Next Level.
