General Mohammed Nabi Azimi is a renowned highly ranked former 4 Star General of the Army of Afghanistan. General Azimi played a key role in the military-political events of the country, from the early 70s through to early 90s.
As a young man, finishing Habibiya high school in Kabul, General Azimi enrolled onto the Afghan Army University. He finished his military studies in 1964 and went onto serving his people and country as a professional military officer. Years after, during the USSR occupation of Afghanistan, General Azimi was promoted to the Afghan deputy defence ministerial as well as the General Commandership of Kabul Garrison Military Base.
General Azimi played a central role in defeating the coup of the then Defence Minister General Shahnawaz Tanai, carried out on 6 March 1990. Through the course of his military career, General Azimi was assigned to a number of other significantly critical military operations across the country which he overcame with success and honour.
Army and Politics reflects a great deal of General Azimi’s own first hand personal experiences of the events and incidents that took place during his service as a military figure.
General Azimi is the author of some other Afghan military-political books as well as a few magnificent novels which are in their Persian version.
