The Last Warlord - Lecture and Book Signing

Wednesday, May 30

For four years Professor Brian Glyn Williams roamed the mountains of Afghanistan retracing a covert operation that saw U.S. Green Beret Special Forces unite with Mongol Uzbek horse warriors to fight the common Taliban foe. His greatest breakthrough came when he was allowed to live with the Uzbeks’ notorious leader, General Dostum ‘The Taliban Killer.’ The result of Williams's fieldwork with this larger than life soldier is his recent book, The Last Warlord: The Life and Legend of Dostum. Dr. Williams will bring his book and the real background story behind the events covered in it and the movie 12 Strong (which is partly based on his book) to life with extraordinary photographs of the covert 2001 US-Uzbek horse campaign by the CIA, Dostum, and Green Berets.
