The Last Warlord: The Life And Legend Of Dostum, The Afghan Warrior Who Led Us Special Forces To Topple The Taliban Regime

The Last Warlord tells the story of the legendary Afghan warlord Abdul Rashid Dostum, a larger-than-life figure who guided US Special Forces to victory over the Taliban after 9/11. Having gained unprecedented access to General Dostum, his family and his sub-commanders, as well as local chieftains, mullahs, elders, Taliban prisoners and women’s rights activists, scholar Brian Glyn Williams paints a fascinating portrait of this Northern Alliance Uzbek commander who has been shrouded in mystery and contradicting hearsay. In contrast to sensational media accounts that have mythologized the ‘bear of a man with a gruff laugh’ who ‘some Uzbeks swear, has on occasion frightened people to death’, Williams carefully chronicles Dostum’s rise from peasant villager to Uzbek leader and skilled strategist who has fought a long and bitter war against the Taliban and Al Qaeda fanatics that have sought to repress his people.
