I would be interested in reading good biographies or (where applicable) magazine profiles of the following people. Please let me know in comments if you have any recommendations, and if none exist you should consider writing one:
— Gulbiddin Hekmatyar — Warren G Harding — Jean Monnet — Ahmad Shah Massoud — William Sherman
There are probably other good choices.
Yes, yes Ghost Wars is very good but doesn’t quite fit the bill.
