  • Dalrymple has thoroughly reseached the first occupation of Afghanistan during the early years of Queen Victoria's reign. He describes the outlooks and behaviours of many Afghanis, senior soldiers and political leaders, and fascinates with a rivetting story with few loose ends.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Return of a King

    A thoroughly scholastic account of the first Afghan/British war. The incompetance and ignorance of those British administrators and commanders is astonishing. It is sad that the facts from this disastrous excursion were not learnt and resulted in 3 more wars of waste in that unconquerable land of Afghanistan. Dalrymples account is clearly written and backed up by a host of references to confirm an accurate portrayal of events.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Outstanding

    A very insightful account of the major conflicts in Afghanistan. I especially liked the later part o f the book when compared to modern Afghanistan.
