    Lightbulb AFGHANISTAN. 175 years on...........and STILL Fighting.

    The British have tried it,! the Russians tried it! the US [and the "Willing"] tried it!.................I have a feeling the Afghans do not like other people in their country????


    Here is a good background from way back......maybe of interest to those who ponder on history..........and the waste of lives


    Just a snippet


    Battle of Kabul and the retreat to Gandamak


    The disastrous culmination in January 1842 to the British invasion of Afghanistan in the First Afghan War............................ The previous battle in the First Afghan War is the Battle of Ghuznee

    The next battle in the First Afghan War is the Siege of Jellalabad

    To the First Afghan War index

    General William Elphinstone: Battle of Kabul and Retreat to Gandamak 1842 during the First Afghan War
    General William Elphinstone: Battle of Kabul and Retreat to Gandamak 1842 during the First Afghan War

    War: First Afghan War

    Date of the Battle of Kabul and the Retreat to Gandamak: January 1842.

    Place of the Battle of Kabul and the Retreat to Gandamak: Central Afghanistan.




    I often wonder if people/governments ever study history??????????



    There is plenty of information on this site and a lot of links to other battles

    No citizens like having foreign troops in their country, friends or otherwise.
