The September 11, 2001, terror attacks orchestrated by al-Qaeda prompted the United States to declare a "War on Terror." When the Taliban government of Afghanistan refused to extradite al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, an American-led coalition went to war with Afghanistan, overthrowing the Taliban government. However, the coalition did not capture bin Laden and all of his followers, so the battle against the terrorists continued, while a war-torn and ravaged Afghanistan struggled to rebuild. Afghanistan War features an account of the battles, weapons, tactics, and people involved in this conflict
