Summary
"Kevin Baker's well-researched history, which draws heavily on resources such as unit histories, presents an important background briefing to the conflicts in Afghanistan and northwest Pakistan. There have been few books which put the conflicts into the broadest perspective and even fewer that also include in their narrative descriptions of the numerous wars and conflicts on the Northwest Frontier as well as Afghanistan. This book includes information on all such wars in Afghanistan, not just those involving British armies, and also describes their background."--Publisher's website.
