I’d like to point readers to the excellent online war blog by the US author, independent journalist, blogger and war correspondent Michael Yon.

Yon is ex Special Forces himself and has been maintaining an informative and interesting blog, which is very well worth a visit, particularly for insider images and insights. His Wikipedia article states the following:

He has been embedded on numerous occasions with American and British troops in Iraq, most prominently a deployment with the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment (Deuce Four) of the 25th Infantry Division in Mosul, Iraq that ended in September 2005. He continues to blog from Iraqi and Afghan towns and battlefields.

His website and online magazine has guest bloggers and there is a very recent article on Afghanistan and PMC. What struck me the most as absolutely fascinating were the photos, the ones that show the landscape of rocks and … well, see for yourself if you can spot them. Readers of Special Forces: Soldiers will know what I mean. These photos provide an excellent aid to Dan in the Afghan mountains, watching a Soviet convoy.

Scroll down for the photos that I mentioned.
