Book discussion Return of a King The Battle of Afghanistan

Renowned Scottish author William Dalrymple's latest book Return of a King: The Battle of Afghanistan was published in December 2012. It has received a lot of acclaim like his previous books, one of which was his first one 'In Xanadu'.

The author's gift for narration has come to the fore in the well-researched Return of a King: The Battle of Afghanistan based on the first Anglo-Afghan War. This war was a battle between the British East India company and Afghanistan.

Mumbai will be hosting a book discussion on Dalrymple's book Return of a King: The Battle of Afghanistan.
