The Soviet War in Afghanistan

The Soviet War in Afghanistan

by Gary Jeffrey, Nick Spender




When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979, the United States was in the middle of a war of words with Afghanistan’s neighbor Iran. The U.S. government along with many other countries supported the rebels in an attempt to remove the influence of the U.S.S.R. from this region. The conflict escalated tensions in the Cold War until reformer Mikhail Gorbachev was elected to the Soviet government in 1985. Featured stories include:
• Firefight in the Battle for Kama—February 19, 1983
• Assault on the Panjshir Valley—April 30, 1984
• Stinger vs. Hind—September 26, 1986
