About this book

Excerpt from Military Service and Adventures in the Far East, Vol. 2 of 2: Including Sketches Sketches of the Campaigns Against the Afghans in 1839, and the Sikhs in 1845-6

A tribe of insolent plunderers had established themselves in the Khoord Caubul, and had the audacity to interfere with the letter-carriers. The gallant Sale, with his brigade, hastened to brush these intruders from the surface of the mountains, but the band of robbers had swollen to an army; and though, by desperate valour and unwearied exertion, a passage was forced through every obstacle, yet the passes closed upon the isolated brigade, and the communication with the ill-fated garrison of Caubul was cut off for ever.
