LAHORE The entire edition of a book, Dead Men Risen: The Welsh Guards and the Real Story of Britains War in Afghanistan, has been purchased by Britains Ministry of Defense (MoD) and pulped at a cost of more than 150,000 pounds sterling, because the contents reflected poorly on the state of preparedness of the British Afghan contingent as well as the casualness in which the civilian lives were treated by its officers and soldiers, UK media reports said. Written by Toby Harnden, the highly critical and embarrassing account of operations in Southern Afghanistan highlights the high cost of the British casualties caused by a mismatch in the equipment as well as manpower levels once viewed against the backdrop of guerrillas tactics particularly their devastating use of IED and magnitude of the threat.
