The warlike "learners"
on 24 December 2012
This was a fascinating account of how the Taliban was originally formed, its members, leaders and aims. For me (and this is personal, I know) it went over the same ground too many times from only slightly different perspectives
But I learned a lot and would recommend it to anyone else who thought that after the Afghans had kicked out the British Army in the late nineteenth century we should have left them to their own devices.
