|About the Book|
The Historical Division - or volume - of a two-volume history of the 1878-1880 Afghan War. The war was fought as part of Britains Great Game with Russia for influence in the traditionally turbulent wilds of Afghanistan. This volume describes the two expeditions sent to Kabul to enforce the submission of the Afghan Emir. It is a handsome production, with excellent maps, descriptions of the main operations and movements and accounts prepared from both official and private sources.
