War in Afghanistan map for August 14, 2021.
I don’t have much to say with this map. It was an intense period where provincial capitals were captured in a span of a few days. Trying to keep up with it took its toll on me and I lost a couple of nights sleep.
While the Taliban capturing provincial capitals and sitting outside of Kabul was the big deal during this period, I still had to follow up with all the remaining smaller districts as well.
In any case, it’s safe to say the outcome is obvious, so unless something changes, for instance US reinvolvement, this is likely my last map in the series. I may post a final map with the final self-evident outcome just to wrap it up.
All my content including the map series will eventually be exported out of Facebook to a website and I hope future students of Afghan military history find value there in what I’ve archived.
