Churchill's First War

by Con Coughlin

"Just over a century ago British troops were fighting a vicious frontier war against Pashtun tribesmen 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. The Story of the Malakand Field Force, published in 1898, was Churchill's first book and, a hundred years later, is required reading for military commanders on the ground, both British and American.
