Operation Enduring Freedom


operation freedom Operation Enduring Freedom provides details on the role of the U.S. Army in the critical three-year period following the conclusion of Operation Anaconda in March  2002. It details the story of American and international forces working to solidify the initial invasion’s crippling of al-Qaeda and removal of the Taliban. It tells the tale of the U.S. Army’s search for a proper balance between counter terrorism and counterinsurgency operations as the enemy rebuilt his forces from safe havens in Pakistan. Finally, it chronicles the Army’s efforts to maintain an effective presence in Afghanistan while juggling the challenges of an indigenous population historically opposed to foreign forces and the decreased resources available after the start of the Iraq war in 2003.
