Lessons from Winston Churchill: Withdrawal from Afghanistan
As America's long decade of war in Afghanistan draws to a close in 2014 with the end of combat operations against the Taliban, it is perhaps worth reflecting on the conclusions the young Winston Churchill reached about the futility of waging war there.
