Overview

Just over a century ago British troops were fighting a vicious frontier war against Pashtun tribesmen on the North-West Frontier. 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. In this talk acclaimed author and foreign correspondent Con Coughlin will tell the story of that campaign, a story of high adventure and imperial success, which contains many lessons and warnings for today.
