By Robert Karjel

The Swedish evacuation from Afghanistan

In the summer of 2021, as a direct consequence of the Western retreat, the Taliban once again claimed the power in Afghanistan and under chaotic conditions, foreigners evacuated the area. 

Through his unique network, Robert Karjel has gained access to many of those who participated in the effort and experienced it from the inside and onsite. Everyone from well-known ambassadors and off-the-grid special forces operators, to the affected Afghans who tried to escape and reach safety. Heroes, victims, deeply moving fates: this is a book that in its bare depiction shakes the Swedish self-perception to the core.
