Description - The First and Second Sikh Wars by Reginald George Burton

The First and Second Sikh Wars of the 1840s were the final battles that secured British domination of the Indian subcontinent for the next century. Noted for both their brutality and sophistication in tactics - with large-scale cavalry clashes, sieges, artillery and infantry engagements - the wars against the Sikh principalities not only handed control of India to Great Britain, but the defeated armies ended up becoming the most loyal and ablest soldiers of the British Empire.In 1911, the British Army command asked its historical branch in India to prepare a military history of the Sikh Wars. The result is this superb volume, rich in detail and analysis, and a treasure trove of background information about the British Army in India and Sikh culture at the time. This reproduction is further enhanced by an introduction from noted historian Jon Coulston, and suggestions for further reading.
