I'm pretty sure I don't have anyone on my flist who can do this, but I'm drafting a story for eid_ka_chand / au_bingo set in Afghanistan in the 1960s. Yes, I am a masochist. Anyone around who might be able to help? I did find these amazing photos.
au_bingo time! For the "Historical: Napoleonic Europe" square. A world of love to daegaer, who dug me from the pit of historyfail and caught some other errors as well; all the remaining ones are mine alone.
