The Afghan Soviet War (1979 – 1989) (Full Documentary)
In première gegaan op 26 mrt. 2021
The Graveyard of Empires. The Rugged and Resilient Nature of the Afghans was on Full Display when the Soviet Union invaded the Country in 1979. The Subsequent Resistance shown by the Afghan Mujahideen captivated the Imagination of the World. Stretching the Soviet Military Machine to its Limits, the Consequences of the War would prove Instrumental in Shaping Geopolitics for the Next Few Decades. In this Feature Length Documentary, I’ll trace the Causes of the War; going as far back as the Modernising Initiatives of the 1950’s. In the Process, we’ll be able to understand Important Questions, such as – how did this Conservative and Staunchly Islamic Society come to be Governed by an Atheistic Inclined Ideology like Communism in 1978? And how did an Irregular Group of Guerrilla Warriors like the Mujahideen contend with a Military Superpower like the Soviet Union?
