    Description: 
    xxxviii, 515 pages, 32 pages of plates : illustrations (chiefly color), maps ; 25 cm

    Contents: 
    No easy place to rule -- An unsettled mind -- The great game begins -- The mouth of hell -- The flag of holy war -- We fail from our ignorance -- All order is at an end -- The wail of bugles -- The death of a king -- A war for no wise purpose.
    Summary: 
    Examines the mid-19th-century Afghan war as a tragic result of neocolonial ambition, cultural collision and hubris, drawing on previously untapped primary sources to explore such topics as the reestablishment of a puppet-leader Shah, the conflict's brutal human toll and the similarities between the war and present-day challenges.
