The Kaiser's Mission to Kabul: A Secret Expedition to Afghanistan in World War I

Be the first to review this product

In 1915, at the height of World War I, the Central Powers sent a diplomatic mission, led by Oskar Niedermeyer and Werner Otto von Hentig, to the court of the Emir of Afghanistan, Habibullah Khan. Jointly operated by the governments of Germany and Turkey, the aim of the mission was to persuade the Emir to declare full independence from the British Empire, enter the war on the side of the Central Powers and attack British India. Britain saw this mission as a serious and credible threat - so much so that they tried to intercept the travellers in Persia en route to Kabul and subsequently implemented their own intelligence mission to ensure that Afghanistan would retain its neutral position. Jules Stewart provides a gripping account of the expedition, highlighting a previously little-known aspect of the international history of World War I.
