book: The Great Game

The Great Game by Peter Hopkirk.

This is a fantastic history of Afghanistan in the 1800s and the cold war that Russia and Great Britain played with each other for influence there. This book is full with amazing spy stories, daring adventurers, intrigue, deception, and more. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to get a better handle on what went on with Russia and Great Britain at the time … and to anyone that wants to have a better understanding of Central Asia.
