The Helmand Valley Project - bit of history


Book Reviewer
A perspective from the early Post WWII history of Afghanistan.

Sixty years ago, life in Afghanistan was very different to the battleground it's become in recent decades. America’s relationship with the country was also very different as can be seen from a remarkable treasure trove of films, shot in the 1950s by American Glenn Foster, and his Afghan assistant Hajji Mehtabuddin. Saeeda Mahmood, born and brought up in southern Afghanistan, explores and introduces the films.

Recollections of US engineers from Boise Idaho and California of how life was before Zahed Shah was deposed.
