"Again have Kandahar and Ghazni, Kabul and Jallalabad, Khaibar and Kurm, Gandamak and Jagdalak; become household words.

Again have the discipline and the courage of the two armies, well directed by skilful leaders, triumphed over numbers, over difficult company, over fanaticism, over treachery. In spite of difficulties, the mere discription of which gives but little idea of their formidable nature, the policy of the Government has triumphed, and the greater part of Afghanistan lies at the feet of Her Majesty the Queen." - from pages 1-2.; 8vo.
