Abstract:British efforts to secure regional stability and maintain the strongest possible defence for India, the most valuable "jewel in the crown" of the British Empire, were intrinsically connected to political stability inside Afghanistan. For most of the nineteenth century and the early part of the twentieth century, Great Britain competed for regional control with successive Russian Tsarist and Soviet regimes over a politically fragmented and perennially unstable federation of Afghan tribes and ethnic groups. This struggle resulted in three Anglo-Afghan Wars and spawned countless tribal engagements on the North-West Frontier border regions with India. Examination of primary source Afghan Strategic Intelligence Records from British Foreign Office, Government of India Foreign and Political Department and British Army officials from 1919 to 1939, reveal the linkages to British strategic decisions executed in a culturally complex and volatile region.
