Afghanistan: A Military History From Alexander The Great To The Fall Of The Taliban

Link = http://www.amazon.com/Afghanistan-Military-History-Alexander-Taliban/dp/0306812339

The only complete single-volume military history of Afghanistan, from ancient times to the war waged by the United States after September 11.. Following the events of September 11, 2001, the world was riveted as American military power contested the legendary warrior culture of Afghanistan. By spring 2002, America began to draw down its forces, its mission accomplished: The Afghan Taliban regime has been overthrown and the terrorists it harbored were on the run. Was America's easy victory proof of its military superiority, or were the Afghans merely eyeing the newcomers as they have watched foreign armies in centuries past, knowing time is on their side?For over 2,500 years, the forbidding territory of Afghanistan has served as a vital crossroads--not just for armies but for clashes between civilizations--the Greeks, Arabs, Mongols, and Tartars, and in more recent times, Britain and Russia. Now America must face a new enemy on this land--a land that for centuries has become a graveyard of empires past.This first-ever complete military history of Afghanistan illuminates the broad historical context into which American forces have been drawn--a cautionary tale, perhaps, about the dangers that may lie ahead.

This is a very good all round book. Not too detailed but still  a good and inforamative read

The following is a separate thread started by Ahangar which I brought here to enrich sticky section on BOOKS. Thanks for brother Ahangar. It is really a touching book.
NEW BOOK ABOUT AFGHANISTAN - just published.





"Roy Gutman, a tireless reporter, has written a deeply researched and fascinating account of the various U.S. foreign policy failures that helped account for the rise of the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan before the 9/11 attacks. Gutman also explains how so many institutions in the United States, from the media to the national security establishment, largely missed what would turn out to be one of the most important stories of our time." -Peter Bergen, author of Holy War, Inc., and The Osama bin Laden I Know "This well-written, on-the-mark book is an informative and entertaining read. No other study that examines the events leading up to 9/11 is as persuasive in placing the blame where it belongs-on the failure of three successive U.S. presidents to provide the foreign policy leadership and direction needed to address the politics, philosophy, and disposition to violence of Islamist extremism." -Thomas E. Gouttierre, dean, International Studies and Programs, University of Nebraska at Omaha Focusing principally on events and policy missteps in Afghanistan in the 1980s and 1990s, award-winning journalist Roy Gutman weaves a narrative that exposes how and why the U.S. government, the United Nations, and the Western media "missed the story" in the lead-up to 9/11. Advancing his narrative carefully and persuasively, he approaches his subject with an objective, journalistic eye and draws heavily on his own original research and extensive interviews with key players both in the United States and abroad. Arguing that the U.S. government made a strategic mistake by categorizing bin Laden's murderous assaults prior to 9/11 as terrorism, he ultimately concludes that the core failure was in the field of U.S. foreign policy. Sure to attract a wide audience, this first-rate, deeply engaging volume makes an original contribution to our understanding of the events and mistakes that ultimately led to 9/11-and offers much-needed insight so that such a story is not missed again.
Read Chapter on Massoud; it is insightful about the necessity of a foriegn backer which Massoud lacked - that may have altered the story so much...





Chapter on Massoud:READ IT HERE



It also has great detail about the events that lead to the take over of the Taliban - down to the commander level.... I recommend it.


Oops! The cover of the book didnt get posted properly.
