Book Review - "Return of a King"
A new book by William Dalrymple is out about the misadventures of the British in Afghanistan. It covers the events of the First Afghan War of 1839-1842 when the British placed an exiled former Afghan King - Sha Shuja - back on the throne. Of course, if you know a little bit of Afghan history, all did not end well. Read a book review on Return of a King: The Battle for Afghanistan, The Daily Star, November 2014.
