NYT Reviews advance copy of official US history of OEF

The New York Times has posted excerpts of the official US Army history of first part of Afghanistan War.
"A Different Kind of War" is the first installment of the Army's official history of the war in Afghanistan, covering the period from October 2001 to September 2005. Written by a team of seven historians at the Army's Combat Studies Institute at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and based on open source material, it is scheduled to be published by spring. The New York Times obtained a copy of the manuscript, which is still under review by current and former military officials.

The excerpts are scanned pages and hard to re-post here. Go read; it's pretty interesting.
