Book Description Leonaur Ltd, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.A concise outline of Britain s first conflict in Afghanistan Whereas the history of British invasion, occupation, adventure and misadventure in Afghanistan in the nineteenth century is well known to military historians, there can be little doubt that the deployment of British soldiers into that daunting and perilous country in recent times has once again brought its affairs into sharp focus. Most will understand the perennial problems of operating in difficult terrain occupied by a fierce independent people where occupation is often confined to the ground upon which the army stands. In this little or nothing has changed for any foreign army that ventures beyond the Khyber Pass. Consideration of the domination of Afghanistan became inevitable as the British Empire inexorably expanded to the entire Indian sub-continent. The first occasion the British seriously engaged the Afghans by marching into their country was in 1839. Very few survivors of the force that occupied Kabul marched back into India again and the peace in 1842 was inconclusive, as history has shown. Since that time this problematic region has been an a feature of the lives of British soldiers through several wars and troubles. This book, a short sketch of the First Afghan War delivered in the most direct terms for those who seek an understanding of how it all began, underlines the uncomfortable parallels between that inhospitable region in the early nineteenth century and almost two centuries later. Available in softcover and back with dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780857063489

Book Description Archive Media Publishing Ltd, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This illustrated book tells the chronological story of the First Anglo-Afghan War using the original letters, personal diaries, official reports and dispatches written by the soldiers and politicians who took part, witnessed and died in these battles. Initially they report glorious tales of success and conquest. They tell of everyday problems of a lack of equipment and a scarcity of funds, difficulties with the local warlords, the native troops and their superior officers, and the difficult terrain and extremes of weather. As time goes on, accounts of betrayal, murder and massacre begin to dominate. From the British highpoint of the storming of Ghazni in July 1839 to the gradual and insidious rebellion of the local tribes, and finally to the appalling destruction of Elphinstone s Army in January 1842, these eye-witness accounts bring this war back to vivid life. It was a war begun for no wise purpose, brought to a close after suffering and disaster, without much glory attached either to the government which directed, or the great body of troops which waged it.
