about this item

Afghanistan: Saddozai Kings & Viziers 1747-1842 introduces an Afghan tribe led by its charismatic leader, Ahmed Shah Abdali, that transformed a band of warring Afghan tribes into the country that we know today as Afghanistan.

After the Ottoman empire, Afghanistan became the second largest empire of the muslim world. However, after its formation the subsequent Saddozai kings, in less than a century, squandered away a whole empire to be banished forever from Afghanistan in 1842. The second man to pick up the fallen standard and lead the way was Vizier Usman Khan who, along with his three sons, was knighted for gallantly fighting alongside the British. In this man, the spirit of the First Leader Ahmed Shah Abdali was revived, proving that the Saddozai were tenacious warriors to be admired and respected.

This book is a fascinating, in-depth study into not only the history of Afghanistan, but into why in more recent years it has reverted to tribal warfare and defies international efforts to be welded together into a modern nation state.
