Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2 MB
Overview: Britain’s army involvement in Afghanistan is a contentious matter, but it’s incessantly forgotten that the present battle is actually the fourth in a string of such wars relationship again so far as the early 19th century. Aiming to give protection to the British territories in India from the increasing Russian empire, the British fought a sequence of conflicts on Afghan territory between 1838 and 1919. The Anglo-Afghan wars of the 19th and early 20th centuries have been ill-conceived and resulted in one of the crucial worst army failures ever sustained by means of British forces on this a part of the sector, with deficient technique within the First Afghan War ensuing within the annihilation of 16,000 infantrymen and civilians in one week. In his new e-book, Jules Stewart explores the possible threat of replaying Britain’s army catastrophes and considers what will also be learnt from revisiting the tale of those previous Afghan wars.
