William Dalrymple's "Return of a King"

15 February 2013

Asia House, London


Award-winning historian and best-selling author William Dalrymple returns with a dazzling new book, Return of a King - the Battle for Afghanistan.  This history of the first Anglo-Afghan war resonates with contemporary politics and reads like a richly-drawn novel.  Using previously undiscovered Afghan sources, and with a complex set of characters, from shahs and emirs, British generals and Russian ambassadors, Return of a King presents the full picture of Britain's disastrous adventure in Afghanistan, and asks: have we learned anything from history?
