Major-General Reginald Mitford recounts one of the most remarkable campaigns undertaken by British Empire forces under one of its greatest generals Field Marshal Roberts.

At the time of the second Anglo-Afghan war in 1879, the author was a major with the 14th Bengal Lancers, an Indian Army regiment with a reputation second to none. He and his men were assigned to the Kabul Field Force, which was sent into the inhospitable terrain of Afghanistan to avenge the murder of the British minister Pierre Cavagnari. Assailed by elements, material shortages, rebel tribesmen and the hostile environment, Mitford made the perilous journey into the heart of Afghanistan. His story is filled with details of the mountains and valleys of Afghanistan that still have barely changed; ambushes, clashes and battle are recounted in vivid detail.
