Margaret Kekewich's study of the First Afghan War describes the crushing defeat of the British in the winter of 1841–2, their re-occupation of Afghanistan in the spring of 1842, and their final retreat at the end of the year. Her narrative draws on two eyewitness accounts: the Journal of Lady Florentia Sale, who was among 100 Britons imprisoned by the Afghans; and a little-known Diary of the final stages of the war by the Rev Isaac Allen.
