After Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, the British Empire and the USSR, the USA and the international coalition have also discovered this to be true.
In three productions, we look at the history of the two recent wars in Afghanistan, the Soviet invasion of 1979 and the war after 9/11, and - twenty years after 9/11, the efforts to achieve a peace agreement.
