Britain’s Greatest Military Disaster (Graveyard of Empires, Part 3)

Anglo-Afghan War

Britain’s quest to install a puppet regime in Kabul during the Anglo-Afghan War resulted in one of its greatest Military Disasters.


BAKU – With an army of roughly 31,800 soldiers, accounting for both British and Sikh forces, William Hay Macnaghten entered Afghanistan. As the advisor to the Indian viceroy, Macnaghten was tasked to subjugate the Afghans by installing a puppet regime in Kabul. But the plan was a little off the mark. In the coming years, while the blood of Afghans manured the ground, the British Empire was dealt with one of its greatest military disasters.
