    Book Í Afgantsy Ì Hardcover ç Rodric braithwaite AfgantsyThe gist of this history occurs when Ambassador Braithwaite closes Chapter Nine by summarizing the Soviet military effort in Afghanistan “And so the Russians discovered as other armies have discovered in Afghanistan before and since that once you have taken the ground you need troops to hold it They might dominate the towns and the villages by day But the mujahedin would rule them by night They never broke the rebels’ grip on the countryside or closed the frontier through which the rebels received their supplies Their best efforts military and political went for nothing They eventually had no choice but to disentangle themselves as best they could” The book chronicles the Soviets’ internal and external efforts to extricate their forces from Afghanistan—efforts which started just about immediately

    Book Í Afgantsy Ì Hardcover ç Rodric braithwaite AfgantsyThe author of this book was the British ambassador to the USSR and then the Russian Federation but I highly appreciate his objective approach throughout the book which is about the causes of Soviet involvement in Afghanistan right up till the withdrawal of the troops and its aftermath from the Russian point of view One reason why I found this book interesting was that the author has uoted first hand experiences of those who were part of the battlefield In initial chapters the author establishes his case on how Afghanistan became a bone of contention between the British and Tsarist Russia Gradually author takes reader to the 1970’s when People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan PDPA coups against President Daud and how the infighting between the Khal and Parcham factions of PDPA led to a bloody power struggle which eventually coerce the Soviet Pol
