A Book Of Taliban Poetry (The UK Army Commander Doesn't Approve)
Retired army colonel Richard Kemp accuses the publishers of "giving voice to terrorists." The anthology's editors "argue that its 235 [translated] poems, including love poems, verses exulting in the Afghan landscape and patriotic ballads, provide a unique insight into the human side of the Taliban."
