London Lit Festival 13: William Dalrymple
Award-winning writer and historian William Dalrymple presents an hour-long lecture based on his latest book, a definitive analysis of the First Afghan War, 1839-1842.
'The Return of a King' is told through the lives of unforgettable characters on all sides and draws on contemporary Afghan accounts. It is a powerful and important parable of colonial ambition, cultural collision, folly and hubris for our times.
