Title   AFGHAN WARS AND THE NORTH-WEST FRONTIER, 1839-1947.

Publisher    Cassell, (London, 2002), reprint.

Seller ID   15418

184 pp, large 8vo (9 13/16" H), laminated, flexible covers. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "British forces in India were in almost constant battle with Afghan hill tribes, the most implacable guerilla fighter in history. 'Frontier Warfare' was one of the most important tasks for the British army in India. It was a strange war fought to its own rules. Prisoners were seldom taken by either side. Over the years, the British introduced armoured vehicles and aircraft, but the key features of warfare on the Afghan frontier remained the same from Victorian times to World War II and the British withdrawal from the sub-continent in 1947. From the army immortalized by Kipling to the end of the British Empire in India, Michael Barthorp reveals how the British dealt with Afghanistan." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor bump at corners of covers, very small bumps along bottom edges o f c overs and one on fore-edge of rear covers, specks of light color offset on rear cover - probably from another book.
