Summary
Just over a century ago British troops were fighting a vicious frontier war against Pashtun tribeman on the North West Frontier - the great-great-grandfathers of the Taliban and tribal insurgents in modern-day Afghanistan. Winston Churchill, then a young cavalry lieutenant, wrote a vivid account of what he saw during his first major campaign. In 'Churchill's First War', Con Coughlin tells the story of that campaign, a story of high adventure and imperial success, which contains many lessons and warnings for today
