Overview

In the aftermath of the First World War, the Afghan invasion of Indian in May 1919 and the subsequent fighting along the frontier aroused little interest outside of India, and it has since attracted little scholarly attention. Yet it deployed in India for the first time the full range of modern military technology. Brian Robson clearly outlines the context in which the conflict took place, detailing the uneasy peace between Britain and Afghanistan after the First and Second Anglo-Afghan wars and relations with Waziristan from 1849 to 1919. Illustrated with maps and contemporary photographs, Crisis on the Frontier is the definitive account of this important and fascinating chapter in British history.
