In mid-2010 the fight for Kandahar Province began. Significant progress has been made (at a tremendous cost) but more work has to be done. As the security gains are consolidated, moves to increase governance and development are underway in an effort to tie the local communities to the district and provincial government. Kandahar Province is made up of many districts - one of these districts is Maiwand District. The Institute for the Study of War has recently published a report by Paraag Shukla entitled Battlefield Update: Task Force Dreadnaught in Maiwand District, Kandahar. The document is available online here.
