Account of the author's service with the British Army in India and his part in the First Anglo-Afghan War describing what it was really like to be on the front line in one of Britain's colonial wars.

In 1842 the regiment was dispatched to Afghanistan, where there was a popular uprising against the British occupation. The Kabul garrison had been evacuated and almost all of its members were killed before they reached India; the Jellalabad Garrison was under siege. Despite the perilous and inhospitable nature of the Afghan terrain, the 31st Regiment of Foot, led by General George Pollock, were part of the force which relieved Jellalabad and rescued British prisoners in Kabul before returning safely to India
