mapping history in the making in Afghanistan

Post by CarlL »

There is an interesting piece on bbc news that's using diagrams / maps to show changes in military control of districts, border points and links to road network (road types uncertain!) see https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-57933979

The use of the term Taliban is also a bit loose (or unexplained in this piece), but in its most generic, something like 'forces anti central government seen as puppet of foreign powers,' this shows the resilience of certain beliefs and loyalties, that has seen them defy Soviet Union, and US Coalition over recent generations.
