Afghani Army Marches Through Kabul Ca. 1919

Unknown - 1919
Rate this:
In 1919 the amir (leader) of Afghanistan, Habibullah Khan, was assassinated. His son Amanullah Khan, then governor of Kabul, secured the treasury and armament to ensure that his uncle, whom he believed was complicit in his father's assassination, could not seize power. The younger Khan was strongly anti-British and mobilized the army to attack the British forces stationed in Afghanistan, triggering the Third Afghan War. The war resulted in the Treaty of Rawalpindi, which gave Afghanistan complete independence from Great Britain. After the war Khan attempted to institute a number of western-style reforms in Afghanistan, but was opposed by the country's mullahs (religious leaders) and driven from power.
