For centuries men have fought and died on the Afghan frontier - American soldiers and the Taliban are merely the latest. As the gateway to India and the crossroads of Central Asia, Afghanistan has tempted the greed and hunger for power of countless invaders - from the Greek armie...s of Alexander the Great to Brezhnev's Soviet forces. Refuge of spies and mountainous court of intrigue, this frontier world is one of the most haunting and gigantic battlefields on earth. Victoria Schofield explores the strategic importance of a region that has made world history time and again, and tells the stories of the extraordinary men and women who traveled its high passes. Afghan Frontier is the gripping portrait of a people and a region that is as treacherous as it is alluring.
