Anglo-Pathan Border War 1897-1898

[ 1897 ]

[1897] Small-scale border war on the Afghan-British frontier grew into a substantial conflict as Pathan forces attacked many British installations (July), taking the Khyber Pass (August). A British autumn campaign took an army of 44,000 into Pathan-held mountain territory, with inconclusive results.

[1898] British forces recaptured the Khyber Pass (March).
