Enduring Freedom - An Afghan Anthology of Poetry

by Ryan Gearing

NEW first Edition Paperbacks 2011 

A new anthology of poetry to commemorate the tenth anniversary of UK forces deployed in Afghanistan, in support of the Combat Stress charity With a foreword by His Grace, The Duke of Westminster, and an introduction by Sir Andrew Motion, Poet Laureate from 1999 to 2009.

Konig Books will donate £2 from the sale of every book to Combat Stress Charity.  

This poetry anthology entitled Enduring Freedom takes the name from the UN authorised, NATO led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) mission as part of the US-led Operation Enduring Freedom launched in 2001.

Since operations began, over 80,000 personnel have been deployed to Afghanistan from the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.  The charity Combat Stress has seen an increase of over 70% in referrals since 2005.

With personnel involved in operations across the globe under immense strain, we have perhaps only reached the tip of the iceberg in cases relating to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This book aims to help increase awareness of these problems whilst raising vital funds for Combat Stress.

With poetry contributions from members of the public, historians, and service personnel, amongst others, anyone reading this anthology will be both moved and inspired.
