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 armies 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. This edition of "Afghan Frontier "includes a new afterword from the author, completing the gripping portrait of a region that is as treacherous as it is alluring.
