Afghanistan in 1919: The Third Anglo-Afghan War

Afghanistan in 1919: The Third Anglo-Afghan War contains almost 2,000 images from the collections of the British Library.  The Archives Unbound description of the database states:

"The Third Anglo-Afghan War began on 6 May 1919 and ended with an armistice on 8 August 1919. While it was essentially a  minor tactical victory for the British in so much as they were able to repel the regular Afghan forces, in many ways it was a strategic victory for the Afghans. This collection of confidential correspondence, memoranda, orders, reports and other materials provide a broad spectrum of information on military policy and administration, including the organization, operations and equipment of the army during the war."
