Texte intégral

1This book mainly deals with the evolution of military and political tactics during the period concerned. The author believes that while the mutual relationship of political, social and military aspects of the Afghan Resistance has been analysed satisfactorily, the same has not been done with regard to the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. Therefore, he is willing to pay attention to the military aspects of this period.

2The book is divided into four parts. In Part One, he deals with the Limits of Sovietization. Part Two of the book is about the Afghan regular armed forces: Reconstruction, Reorganization and Structural Limits. In Part Three, called “The Pacification Policy”, we see the efforts made for national reconciliation.

3The last part is about the role of the militias. There is some useful information concerning the age groups in the PDAP, the percentage of party members in the armed forces, educational levels of party members, membership at local level, ethnic composition of the PDAP, military operations carried out by Afghan armed forces etc.
