Just read the Book: Lie Down with Lions written by Ken Follett. So this is the movie. Now I have to find it somewhere.
From other reviews it doesn't seem to follow the book as closely which outlines a lot of the Russian war with Afghanistan. But there is certainly enough plot, action, history, romance, deceit, and intrigue to keep you interested. Descriptions of the Afghan countryside, people, tribes and their inner conflict before Osama Ben Laden lets you know that not much has changed. Follett even mentions Bagram Air Force Base which we are using now.
A friend of mine is working in the South of Afghanistan and he says it is truly completely different from the Northern area where the book is set. The book really gives you a picture of what our troops are up against and why it is possibly a futile war, for a lot of reasons.
