A study of the conflicts which established British rule in South Asia, and of the military's position in the constitution of British India. It outlines the course and the causes of the campaigns which the British in India fought against their European and South Asian rivals for the succession to the Mughal Empire. It also shows how, at times, there was conflict amongst the British themselves - between the British governments in London and India; between civil governors and their military commanders; and between officers and men. The Great Mutiny of 1857 brought about a new army and constitution. Although there were no more wars in British India, controversy continued over the army's composition, organization and political control. The book ends with an analysis of the problems of recruiting and training the all-important officer corps, with the admission of Indians a crucial issue.

The earliest known references to armies in India are millennia ago in the Vedas and the epics Ramayana and Mahabaratha

The earliest known references to armies in India are millennia ago in the Vedas and the epics Ramayana and Mahabaratha. From the ancient period to the 19th century, a succession of powerful dynasties and empires came to be and some were challenged by lesser Indian rulers who also struggled for land and power through warring.

In 1858, British Crown rule was established in India, ending a century of control by the East India Company. The life and death struggle that preceded this formalisation of British control lasted nearly two years, cost £36 million, and is variously referred to as the 'Great Rebellion', the 'Indian Mutiny' or the 'First War of Indian Independence'. Inevitably, the consequences of this bloody rupture marked the nature of political, social and economic rule that the British established in its wake.

The topic was quite thoroughly handled, but the book was hard to read. It contained much too many details regarding the administration of India and many many names. The things were there but it is written like accountants handbook. Boring.

This is a very outstanding book on the subject of British India and it will fit nice in my Indian Army section in my Man Cave
