Afghanistan Timeline

Hosseini Khaled often helps his readers understand the historical timeline for key events that are the backdrop of wars in Afghanistan. To help you further see the broader picture, check this website that presents an overview of key events in the 20th and 21st centuries in the country's history: BBC Afghanistan Timeline. After reviewing the timeline, comment on what you have learned about the country's struggles.

Yes the BBC provides a great Afghanistan timeline! If you want to go back further in history I happen to cross another extended Afghanistan Timeline. What do you think?
