King Amanullah Khan ruled (1919 - 1929) Mirwais Khan Hotak (1709 - 1715)
The Third Anglo-Afghan War or War of Independence began on the 3rd of May 1919 at Torkham at the entrance to the Khyber Pass. On the 28th, General Nadir Khan made a significant attack on ThaI, deep in British territory. In the meantime British aerial bombing of Jalalabad and Kabul introduced an entirely new dimen-sion to the war, one which the Afghans had never before ex-perienced, one they did not relish. The British, for their part, were exhausted after World War I and viewed war with Afghanistan with equal distaste. Some British troops actually refused to proceed to the front, and public opinion at home was bitterly outspoken in its opposition. A cease-fine was accordingly called on June 3rd, 1919, but it took the diplomats until November, 1921, to work out the treaty which granted Afghanistan full independence.

A picture of life in the old city of Kandahar under the Timurids, the Safavids and the Moghuls has begun to emerge since the British Institute began its excavations in 1974. Bronze ewers, imported glazed ceramics and ornate glass from Persia and im-ported porcelains from China speak of widespread trade. Locally made glazed wares in the Persian style speak of a cultural orienta-tion toward the west.

On the whole the indigenous Pushtun tribes living in the Kandahar area were more attached to the Persians and, indeed, on those occasions when the Moghuls received the city by means other than conquest, it was disaffected Persian governors who instigated the transfer, not the tribes. The tribes were not above pitting foreigner against foreigner in order to further their attempts to better one another. However, siding sometimes with the Persians, sometimes with the Moghuls, but never with each other, they perpetuated tribal disunity and prolonged foreign domination.
