In July 2008, hundreds of insurgents attacked a combined US and Afghan force at Wanat, a town deep in the mountains of northeastern Afghanistan. The Battle of Wanat has since become the best-known action from the war in Afghanistan. For the first time, the story of that battle is available in multimedia format. The Wanat: Combat Action in Afghanistan iBook tells the story of the fight using maps, photos, infographics, 3D terrain views, and video taken by both the insurgents and the US soldiers at Wanat. These interactive elements make the account of this critical battle even more compelling and insightful.
