I have finally finished reading (with my ears) Return of a King: The Battle for Afghanistan, 1839-42 by William Dalrymple, a big book about the first Afghan war..

It was a very interesting book and I learned a lot that I did not know about the British Empire’s first attempt to invade Afghanistan. Britain tried to enforce a regime change but was forced to abandon Afghanistan after spending the equivalent of billions of pounds, losing thousands of lives and failing to change Afghanistan.

Sound familiar?
