I am ready to serve the people of Afghanistan, particularly in order to restore peace. I will be ready to assume any duty at the service of my people.
— Ahmad Shah Massoud

Ahmad Shah Massoud was a prominent Afghan military and political leader. He played a crucial role in the resistance against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and later became a key figure in the fight against the Taliban.

Massoud was born on September 2, 1953, in the province of Panjshir, Afghanistan. Coming from a military family, he grew up with a strong sense of duty and love for his country. Massoud studied engineering at Kabul University, where he was politically active and became involved in the Muslim Youth, a Islamist student movement. In 1975, Massoud joined the resistance against the Soviet-backed government, which had come to power through a coup. His exceptional leadership skills and military prowess quickly became apparent, earning him respect and admiration among his comrades.

During the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, Massoud emerged as a key figure in the resistance. He led the Mujahideen forces in the Panjshir Valley, employing guerrilla warfare tactics and utilizing the difficult terrain to his advantage. Massoud's forces successfully repelled numerous Soviet offensives, inflicting heavy losses on the invading army.

Following the Soviet withdrawal in 1989, Afghanistan plunged into a civil war as rival factions vied for control. Massoud, known for his commitment to a democratic and inclusive Afghanistan, continued his resistance against the Taliban, who had gained significant ground. Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, Massoud's forces managed to maintain control over the Panjshir Valley, becoming a symbol of resistance and hope for the Afghan people. He actively sought international support for the Afghan resistance and warned the world about the growing threat of the Taliban, who harbored extremist ideologies.

On September 9, 2001 Massoud was assassinated by suicide bombers posing as journalists. His death was a devastating blow to the resistance and the Afghan people. However, his legacy as a courageous and visionary leader endured. In the aftermath of Massoud's death, the United States and its allies joined the fight against the Taliban regime. Massoud's resistance fighters formed crucial alliances with international forces, ultimately leading to the overthrow of the Taliban government in late 2001.

Expert's Opinion[]

Ahmed Shah Massoud won due to his dominating melee, long range, and explosive weaponry. The AKS-74U destroyed the SKS since it primarily had a larger rate of fire. Add in Che's poorer physical health due to his asthma and Massoud had his victory in the bag.
