Item description for THE BRITISH IN INDIA 1826-1859: Organisation, Warfare, Dress and Weapons (Armies of the Nineteenth Century) by John French...

Of all the military campaigns fought by the British during the 19th century, no area saw more conflict than the subcontinent of India. Dozens of encounters, both great and small, involved many of its races as either friends or foes of Britain - indeed, it was not unusual for an area to furnish both ally and enemy at the same time! This volume covers the British, Indian and Anglo-Indian troops who fought for The Honourable East India Company and Britain over the varied landscape of what is present day Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, between the years 1826 and 1859.

The vast array of uniforms and dress worn by soldiers serving in India during this period is examined in detail, and extensive information is also provided on regimental Colours. The book's nine chapters cover the campaign in Bhurtpore (1825-26); the Coorg campaign (1834); the First Afghan War (1839-42); the conquest of Sind (1843); the campaign against Gwalior (1843); the Sikh Wars (1845-46 and 1848-49); actions on the North-West Frontier (1849-58); the Santhal Rebellion (1855-56); and the Indian Mutiny (1857-59).

Each of these chapters includes uniform information specific to the campaign covered, while that on the Indian Mutiny also includes details of Mutineer dress. Many orders of battle and battle-plans are also included. Illustrations comprise 199 drawings of troop types and flags, and 27 other illustrations and maps

Reviews - What do customers think about THE BRITISH IN INDIA 1826-1859: Organisation, Warfare, Dress and Weapons (Armies of the Nineteenth Century)?

Armies of the Raj  Sep 11, 2008
This book covers some of the forgotten wars that the British Empire has fought on the Indian subcontinent.Although an Englishman or an Indian might remember them, they remain largely unknown to Americans.(who don't much remember their own history!)
As in other books in this series,the emphasis is on the dress of the combattants,with some maps and order of battle information.The book only covers the Brtish and the Indians who fought beside them- the Indians and other enemies of the Raj will be covered in another book(waiting for that one...)
In order the chapters are,The Seige Of Bhurtpore 1825-26,The Coorg Campaign 1834,The First Afgan War 1839-42,The Conquest Of Sind 1843,Gwalior 1834,The Sikh Wars 1845-46 and 1848-49,(Britain's toughest fight,until the Mutiny.)The North-west Frontier 1849-58,The Santhal Rebellion 1855-56( so obscure the author had trouble finding any references to it!)And finaly the Indian Mutiny 1857-59, wich shook the Empire to it's core.
