[62] Lady Sale was highly critical of Elphinstone's leadership, writing: "General Elphinstone vacillates on every point. The departing British contingent numbered around 16,500, of which about 4,500 were military personnel, and over 12,000 were camp followers. 333–81 from, Dupree, L. Afghanistan. You must never receive agents from them, or have aught to do with them without our sanction; you must dismiss Captain Viktevitch [Witkiewicz] with courtesy; you must surrender all claims to Peshawar". [12][13] Dost Mohammad had recently lost a strategic city of Peshawar to the Sikh Empire and was willing to form an alliance with Britain if they gave support to retake it, but the British were unwilling. Lady Butler's famous painting of Dr. William Brydon, initially thought to be the sole survivor, gasping his way to the British outpost in Jalalabad, helped make Afghanistan's reputation as a graveyard for foreign armies and became one of the great epics of empire. The shops were plundered and the people all fighting. [30] Shuja had them all beheaded, which led Sir John Kaye, in his official history of the war, to write this act of "wanton barbarity", the "shrill cry" of the Ghazis, would be remembered as the "funeral wail" of the government's "unholy policy".[30]. [66] For several months afterwards, what had once been Shuja's army was reduced to begging on the streets of Kabul as Akbar had of all of Shuja's mercenaries mutilated before throwing them on the streets to beg. L'armée britannique occupant alors l'essentiel de son pays, le fils et successeur de Shir Ali, Mohammad Ya'qub Khan, ratifia le traité de Gandomak en mai 1879, essentiellement pour éviter une annexion pure et simple. [74] Lady Sale wrote that as she was taken back to Kabul she noticed: "The road was covered with awful mangled bodies, all naked". "[69] Lady Sale took a bullet in her wrist while she had to watch as her son-in-law Sturt had "...his horse was shot out from him and before he could rise from the ground he received a severe wound in the abdomen". The Pashtuns were the dominant ethnic group, and it was with the Pashtun tribes that the British interacted the most. The First Anglo–Afghan war is depicted in a work of historical fiction, The ordeal of Dr. Brydon may have inspired the story of, Husain, Farrukh (2018) Afghanistan in the age of empires - the great game for South and Central Asia' London: Silk Road Books and photos. The chosen location was indefensible, being low and swampy with hills on every side. [14] The British could have had an alliance with the Punjab or Afghanistan, but not both at the same time. Shuja promptly confirmed his reputation for cruelty by seeking to wreak vengeance on all who had crossed him as he considered his own people to be "dogs" who needed to be taught to obey their master.[33].

Lady Sale wrote in her diary on 2 November 1841: "This morning early, all was in commotion in Kabul. At one point, Shuja had hired an American adventurer Josiah Harlan to overthrow Dost Mohammad Khan, despite the fact Harlan's military experience comprised only working as a surgeon with the East India Company's troops in First Burma War. [60] The British forces took no action in response despite being only five minutes away, which encouraged further revolt. [25] Of the two divisions of the Grand Army of the Indus, the Bombay division numbered fifty-six hundred men and the Bengal division numbered ninety-five hundred men. "This morning a strange man came into camp, covered with hair, and almost naked his face burnt very much; he turned out to be Lance-Sergeant Philip Edwards of the Queen's 44th Regiment who escaped at the general slaughter at Gundamuch, Affghanistan, and after travelling 15 months in a southerly direction by the sun, he found his way into camp here, not knowing where he was."" It was one of the first major conflicts during the Great Game, the 19th century competition for power and influence in Central Asia between Britain and Russia. In August 1839, after thirty years, Shuja was again enthroned in Kabul. [14] Accompanying the invasion force were 38,000 Indian camp followers and 30,000 camels to carry supplies. [35] Stoddard had been sent to Bukhara to sign a treaty of friendship and arrange a subsidy to keep Bukhara in the British sphere of influence, but was sent to the dungeon which Nasrullah Khan decided the British were not offering him a big enough bribe. [45], Dost Mohammad unsuccessfully attacked the British and their Afghan protégé Shuja, and subsequently surrendered and was exiled to India in late 1840. Here are the battles and actions in chronological order. In his private quarters, he would take a bath with his Afghan mistress in the hot water of lust and pleasure, as the two rubbed each other down with flannels of giddy joy and the talc of intimacy. [14] The Pashtun tribes lived by their strict moral code of Pashtunwali ("the way of the Pashtuns") stating various rules for a Pashtun man to live by, one of which was that a man had to avenge any insult, real or imagined, with violence, in order to be considered a man. Or non seulement l'émir refusa de recevoir la mission conduite par Neville Bowles Chamberlain, mais il menaça d'arrêter les diplomates s'ils entraient dans son pays. Background. [50], Between April and October 1841, disaffected Afghan tribes were flocking to support resistance against the British in Bamiyan and other areas north of the Hindu Kush mountains, organised into an effective resistance by chiefs such as Mir Masjidi Khan[51] and others. [60] The only person who took action that day was Shuja who ordered out one of his regiments from the Bala Hissar commanded by a Scots mercenary named Campbell to crush the riot, but the old city of Kabul with its narrow, twisting streets favored the defensive with Campbell's men coming under fire from rebels in the houses above. Akbar Khan was defeated near Jalalabad and plans were laid for the recapture of Kabul and the restoration of British hegemony. Lord Lytton, vice-roi des Indes, dépêcha néanmoins une mission diplomatique à Kaboul en septembre 1878, mais les émissaires britanniques furent interceptés alors qu'ils s’approchaient de l'entrée orientale du défilé de Khaïber, ce qui déclencha la deuxième guerre anglo-afghane. Cette guerre, à l'issue de laquelle les Britanniques réalisèrent tous leurs objectifs géopolitiques, s'acheva par le traité de Gandamak. The Russians kept well out of Afghan internal affairs, with the exception of the Panjdeh incident three years later, resolved by arbitration and negotiation after an initial British ultimatum.[24]. He wrote that it was, a war begun for no wise purpose, carried on with a strange mixture of rashness and timidity, brought to a close after suffering and disaster, without much glory attached either to the government which directed, or the great body of troops which waged it. In August 1842 General Nott advanced from Kandahar, pillaging the countryside and seizing Ghazni, whose fortifications he demolished. On 1 January 1842, following some unusual thinking by Elphinstone, which may have had something to do with the poor defensibility of the cantonment, an agreement was reached that provided for the safe exodus of the British garrison and its dependents from Afghanistan. Both claimed in 1908; territories formed in 1962 (British Antarctic Territory) and 1985 (South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands). [23] India was only one of several proprietary colonies in the British Empire around the world, where various corporations or individuals had been granted the right to rule by the Crown, with for instance Rupert's Land, which was a vast tract covering most of what is now Canada being ruled by the Hudson's Bay Company, but India was easily the most wealthy and profitable of all the proprietary colonies. Not one benefit, political or military, was acquired with this war. [47] By 1840 Clanricarde was reporting to London that he was quite certain a mutually satisfactory agreement could be negotiated, and all he needed was the necessary permission from the Foreign Office to begin talks. [16], With British forces occupying much of the country, Sher Ali's son and successor, Mohammad Yaqub Khan, signed the Treaty of Gandamak in May 1879 to prevent a British invasion of the rest of the country. [69] As the East India Company would not pay a ransom for Indian women and children, Akbar refused to accept them, and so the Indian women and children died with the rest of the force in the Hindu Kush. [14] The British denied that they were invading Afghanistan, claiming they were merely supporting its "legitimate" Shuja government "against foreign interference and factious opposition. M. M. Kaye fait de la deuxième guerre afghane la toile de fond de son roman Pavillons lointains. Lord Auckland's plan was to drive away the besiegers and replace Dost Mohammad with Shuja Shah Durrani, who had once ruled Afghanistan and who was willing to ally himself with anyone who might restore him to the Afghan throne. That same summer, Russia sent an uninvited diplomatic mission to Kabul. Ali's successor Mohammad Yaqub Khan immediately sued for peace and the Treaty of Gandamak was then signed on 26 May 1879. Les Britanniques renoncèrent cette fois à humilier les Afghans en nommant un résident à Kaboul ; ayant atteint tous leurs objectifs, ils se retirèrent. [67] On the second day all of the men of the Royal Afghan Army's 6th regiment deserted, heading back to Kabul, marking the end of the first attempt to give Afghanistan a national army. [30] The British took fifty prisoners who were brought before Shuja, where one of them stabbed a minister to death with a hidden knife. Russian control then extended as far as the northern bank of the Amu Darya. Rahman confirmed the Treaty of Gandamak, whereby the British took control of the territories ceded by Yaqub Khan, and also of Afghanistan's foreign policy in exchange for protection and a subsidy. [48] At the same time, the lowering of Anglo-Russian tension in the 1840s made holding Afghanistan more of an expensive luxury from the British viewpoint as it not longer seemed quite as essential to have a friendly government in Kabul anymore. [21] But at this point, Auckland was committed to putting Afghanistan into the British sphere of influence and nothing would stop him from going ahead with the invasion. 1079 of 1916, and the date added in 1914. In 1842 the Russian border was on the other side of the Aral Sea from Afghanistan. Many voices in Britain, from Lord Aberdeen[88] to Benjamin Disraeli, had criticized the war as rash and insensate. [69] With his wife and mother-in-law by his side in the snow, Sturt bled to death over the course of the night. The British feared that an invading Islamic army would lead to an uprising in IIndia by the people and princely states therefore it was decided to replace Dost Mohammed Khan with a more pliant ruler. " Plusieurs combats menés par les Britanniques entre 1878 et 1880 peuvent être considérés comme des victoires décisives. [22] The Afghan tribes maintained internal rule and local customs, and provided a continuing buffer between the British Raj and the Russian Empire.

The First Anglo-Afghan War (Pashto: د افغان-انگرېز لومړۍ جګړه‎, also known by the British as the Disaster in Afghanistan)[3] was fought between the British Empire and the Emirate of Afghanistan from 1839 to 1842. [48] Palmerston noted that because the British had more money to bribe local rulers in Central Asia, this gave them the advantage in this "game", and it was thus better to keep the "Great Game" going. 333–81 from, Yapp, M.E "British Perceptions of the Russian Threat to India" pp. leading to the creation of a new North-West Frontier Province. Shir Ali Khan, l’émir d’Afghanistan, tenta sans succès de faire arrêter les émissaires russes, mais ils arrivèrent à Kaboul le 22 juillet 1878. They advanced through rough terrain, across deserts and 4,000-metre-high[dubious – discuss] mountain passes, but made good progress and finally set up camps at Kandahar on 25 April 1839. Meanwhile, General Pollock, who had taken command of a demoralized force in Peshawar used it to clear the Khyber Pass to arrive at Jalalabad, where General Sale had already lifted the siege. Elles les exécutaient aussi en leur urinant dans la bouche[10]. [19] Ghazi Mohammad Jan Khan Wardak, and a force of 10,000 Afghans, staged an uprising and attacked British forces near Kabul in the Siege of the Sherpur Cantonment in December 1879. As early as 1838, Count Karl Nesselrode, the Russian Foreign Minister, had suggested to the British Ambassador in St. Petersburg, Lord Clanricarde, that Britain and Russia sign a treaty delimiting spheres of influence in Asia to end the "Great Game" once and for all. Two memsahibs, also his lovers, would join them". The main British Indian force occupying Kabul along with their camp followers, having endured harsh winters as well, was almost completely annihilated during its 1842 retreat from Kabul. [40] However, as Husain points out the Warburton marriage was a forced marriage (abduction)[11] and according to the source cited by Dalrymple, Walu Khan Shamalzai of the Ghilzais had been sentenced to death by the British but was pardoned by Lynch in exchange for receiving his sister as concubine; no marriage took place. "[2] Shuja Shah by 1838 was barely remembered by most of his former subjects and those that did viewed him as a cruel, tyrannical ruler who, as the British were soon to learn, had almost no popular support in Afghanistan. [25] The units from the Bengal Army going into Afghanistan were Skinner's Horse, the Forty-third Native Infantry and the Second Light Cavalry, which were all Company regiments while the Sixteenth Lancers and the Thirteenth Light Infantry came from the British Army in India. The combined British forces defeated all opposition before taking Kabul in September. Burnes wrote home after having dinner with Count Witkiewicz and Dost Mohammad in late December 1837: "We are in a mess home. [25] Furthermore, the politically powerful East India Company had regiments from the British Army sent to India to serve alongside the East India Company's army. A Kashmiri slave girl who belonged to a Pashtun chief Abdullah Khan Achakzai living in Kabul ran away to Burnes's house. [69] Johnson described "murderous fire" that forced the British to abandon all baggage while camp followers regardless of sex and age were cut down with swords. [46] The Oriental Crisis of 1840 almost caused an Anglo-French war, which given the long-standing Franco-Russian rivalry caused by Nicholas's detestation of Louis-Philippe as a traitor to the conservative cause, inevitably improved relations between London and St. Petersburg, which ultimately led to the Emperor Nicholas making an imperial visit to London in 1844 to meet Queen Victoria and the Prime Minister Lord Peel. Ayub Khan, qui avait été gouverneur de la province de Herat, se révolta, mit en déroute un détachement britannique à Maïwand en juillet 1880 et assiégea Kandahar. Scholars now favour a different interpretation that the fear of the East India Company was in fact the decision of Dost Mohammed Khan and the QQajar Ruler of Iran to form an alliance and extinguish Sikh rule in Punjab. Roberts fit alors évacuer Kaboul par le gros de l’armée britannique et au mois de septembre, il écrasa les partisans d'Ayub Khan à Kandahar, mettant un terme au conflit. "[59] That same day, a mob "thirsting for blood" appeared outside of the house of the East India Company's second political officer, Sir Alexander 'Sekundar' Burnes, where Burnes ordered his sepoy guards not to fire while he stood outside haranguing the mob in Pashto, attempting unconvincingly to persuade the assembled men that he did not bed their daughters and sisters. "The Revolutions of 1841–2 in Afghanistan" pp 333–81 from, Yapp, M.E. Gleig wrote a memoir of the disastrous (First) Anglo-Afghan War, of which he was not one of the few survivors as alleged by some authors such as Dalrymple, but in fact someone who interviewed the survivors and wrote his account as declared on the first page of his book which is described as an "Advertisement" but is in fact the preface. 333–81 from, Macrory, Patrick. When the British and Indian soldiers had withdrawn, the Afghans agreed to let the British attain all of their geopolitical objectives, as well as create a buffer between the British Raj and the Russian Empire. The Church of St. John the Evangelist located in Navy Nagar, Mumbai, India, more commonly known as the Afghan Church, was dedicated in 1852 as a memorial to the dead of the conflict. [35] Dost Mohammed fled the dubious hopistality of the embrace of the Emir of Bukhara and on 2 November 1840 defeated the 2nd BBengal Cavalry. The British had the power to compel Singh to return the former Afghan territories he had conquered whereas the Russians did not, which explains why Dost Mohammad Khan wanted an alliance with the British. La légation britannique ouvrit des bureaux à Kaboul et d'autres grandes villes, l'autorité britannique s’étendit aux défilés de Khaïber et de Michni, et l’Afghanistan céda diverses régions des confins nord-ouest et la province de Quetta à la Grande-Bretagne. [11], Many of the women and children were taken captive by the Afghan warring tribes; some of these women married their captors, mostly Afghan and Indian camp followers who were wives of British officers.

De plus, les Afghans purent conserver leur souveraineté en matière de politique intérieure. [61] After losing about 200 men killed, Campbell retreated back to the Bala Hissar. [44] In 1840, the British strongly pressured Shuja to replace the feudal system with a standing army, which threatened to do away with the power of the chiefs, and which the Emir rejected under the grounds that Afghanistan lacked the financial ability to fund a standing army. "Retreat From Kabul: The Catastrophic Defeat In Afghanistan, 1842". Abdur Rahman avait ratifié le traité de Gandamak, laissant les Britanniques maîtres des territoires du Nord-Ouest et leur abandonnant la politique extérieure du pays[6],[7],[2],[3].

I could not believe my own eyes or ears. One down, t'other come on, is the principle of these vagabonds". Instead, the British feared the French-trained Dal Khalsa, and they considered the Sikh army to be a far more formidable threat than the Afghans who did not have a well- disciplined army, instead having only a tribal levy where under the banner of jihad tribesmen would come out to fight for the Emir. The war was part of the Great Game between the British and Russian empires. [48] The British Foreign Secretary Lord Palmerston rejected the Russian offer to end the "Great Game" as he believed that as long as the "Great Game" continued, Britain could inconvenience Russia in Asia to better achieve her foreign policy goals in Europe much more than Russia could inconvenience Britain in Asia to achieve her foreign policy goals in Europe. Cependant, ceux-ci durent abandonner la politique extérieure de leur pays à la Couronne britannique[2],[3].

[29] Before the fortress, the British were attacked by a force of the Ghilji tribesmen fighting under the banner of jihad who were desperate to kill farangis, a pejorative Pashtun term for the British and were beaten off. Au terme de ce traité, moyennant des subsides annuels et de vagues assurances d'assistance en cas d'agression étrangère, Yaqoub abandonna toute prérogative en matière de politique extérieure. "The Revolutions of 1841–2 in Afghanistan" pp. (. [71] Johnson described Shelton as fighting like a "bulldog" with his sword, cutting down any Afghan who tried to take him on so efficiently that by the end of the day no Afghan would challenge him. Dost Muhammad was released and re-established his authority in Kabul. [18] Burnes in fact had no power to negotiate anything, and Harlan complained that Burnes was just stalling, which led to Dost Mohammad expelling the British diplomatic mission on 26 April 1838. [38] Kaye wrote the scandal was "open, undisguised, notorious" with British officers and soldiers openly having sexual relationships with Afghan women and in a nation like Afghanistan where women were and still are routinely killed in "honour killings" for the mere suspicion of engaging in premarital sex which is seen as a slur against the manhood of their male family members, most Afghan men were highly furious at what they saw as a national humiliation that had questioned their manhoods. Le docteur Watson, ami et biographe de Sherlock Holmes, est un médecin militaire ayant servi dans l'Armée des Indes. The British Army then withdrew. The British formed a square and defeated the first couple of the Afghan attacks, "driving the Afghans several times down the hill" before running out of ammunition. Le héros, Ashton Pelham Martyn (Ashok) est envoyé comme espion à Kaboul, où son meilleur ami est nommé chef de la mission Cavagnari. L’officier britannique John Masters signale dans son autobiographie qu’au cours de la deuxième guerre anglo-afghane, les femmes pachtounes des provinces nord-ouest des Indes châtraient les soldats prisonniers non-musulmans, comme les Britanniques et les Sikhs[8],[9]. The war was split into two campaigns - the first began in November 1878 with the British invasion of Afghanistan. On 23 July 1839, in a surprise attack, the British-led forces captured the fortress of Ghazni, which overlooks a plain leading eastward into the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

[33] Macnaughten, who had once been a judge in a small town in Ulster before deciding he wanted to be much more than a small town judge in Ireland, was known for his arrogant, imperious manner, and was simply called "the Envoy" by both the Afghans and the British.

"[14] On 20 January 1838, Lord Auckland sent an ultimatum to Dost Mohammad telling him: "You must desist from all correspondence with Russia. There were several decisive actions in the Second Anglo–Afghan War, from 1878 to 1880. From Jalalabad, General Pollock inflicted a further crushing defeat on Akbar Khan. Indeed Captain Ponsoby's sword was nearly cut in two.

Dans les nouvelles du cycle de Sherlock Holmes, on retrouve de loin en loin des allusions à la blessure de fusil jezaïl reçue par Watson lors de ce conflit ; mais Conan Doyle évoque tantôt une blessure à l'épaule, tantôt à la jambe du célèbre médecin.
