For over 2,500 years, the forbidding territory of Afghanistan has served as a vital crossroads not only for armies but also for clashes between civilizations. An understanding of the military history of that blood-soaked land is essential now as America faces a new enemy on this land, a land that for centuries has become a graveyard of empires past.
“Recounts with brisk authority and many illuminating analogies…This is a noteworthy and valuable book.”—Amazon.com, editorial review
