The Rest Is History

88. The First Anglo-Afghan War

The Rest Is History

β€œA war begun for no wise purpose.” This description of the First Anglo-Afghan War, fought in the early-mid 19th Century, could stand as an epitaph for most conflicts in the region since. William Dalrymple has written extensively about the history of Afghanistan and he joins Dominic Sandbrook and Tom Holland to take a deep dive into this β€˜graveyard of empires’.
