Afghan-Soviet War

1 comment:

  1. This is a cool documentary on the Afghan and Soviet war....

    Most of the fighters seen are part of General Ahmad Shah Massoud of the Northern Alliance (also called the Lion of Panjshir).

    One way to spot the difference between the Mujahdeen and the foreign fighters (like Al Qeada although not called that at the time) is that the Pahstuns are wearing turbans and the northern alliance members are wearing a different type of hat called... the pawkul. (a wool hat that is rolled up on the sides)
