Description

For Official Use Only. With Relevance to the Third Anglo-Afghan War.

Surveyor General of India map of the western borders of Pakistan initially issued in 1915 and published in 1925 in Calcutta.

This highly detailed map shows the course of the Kurram River near Manduri, near the Pakistan/Afghan border. Roads, peaks, settlements, and tribal areas are all shown.

The map was updated and published in the immediate aftermath of the Third Anglo-Afghan War, a strange offshoot of the First World War. Germans in Kabul had managed to convince Afghanistan that the loss of independence in foreign affairs that they had ceded to Britain was a mistake, leading to the 1919 conflict between the two nations. Ethnic Afghani on the British side of the border continued to foment insurrection long after 1919 and the signing of a peace treaty.
