Caroline Richards is the wife of General Sir David Richards GCB CBE DSO who commanded the UN mandated International Security and Assistance Forces in Afghanistan 2006/7. Realising that she knew nothing about the country, its people and the reasons why her husband was deploying to Afghanistan, she set out to explore these questions. Unable to visit the country she viewed the situation through the eyes of the people she met – attempting to see beyond the headlines.
