History for busy people. Western forces are currently still embroiled in war with Afghanistan. They invaded in 2001 after the 9/11 Taliban attack on the Twin Towers. The conflict is long, costly and seems to be unending. Can we look to history to help us understand Afghanistan?Britain has invaded Afghanistan twice before in the nineteenth century. Both times tenacious Afghan fighters defended their country to humiliating British defeats. The Soviet Union also discovered what a tough enemy the Afghans are after nearly a decade of conflict from 1979 to 1989. When not fighting foreign invaders, Afghanistan was torn apart by Civil War from 1990 to 1996, resulting in victory for the Taliban.The Afghan Wars in an Hour is an excellent way to learn all about the complex wars that have been fought in Afghanistan for almost four decades. It explains who the Taliban and the Mujahedeen are, how their politics work, why Osama Bin Laden is so significant, and why it is so hard to achieve peace Afghanistan, all in just one hour.Love your history?
