The treaty granted complete independence from Britain; although Afghanistan was never a part of the British Empire. The First Anglo-Afghan War was developed between 1839 and 1842 which led to the defeat of the entire British-led Indian invaders by Afghan forces under Akbar Khan. After this defeat, the British-led forces returned to Afghanistan on a special mission to rescue their prisoners of war (POWs) but quickly made a complete withdrawal. The Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878–80) first led to the British defeat followed by their victory at the Battle of Kandahar, which led to Abdur Rahman Khan becoming the new emir and the start of friendly British-Afghan relations. The British were given control of Afghanistan’s foreign affairs in exchange for protection against the Russians and Persians. The country only got rid of the British protectorate in 1919, after a third war Anglo-Afghan, which this time lasted four months.
