This book offers an account of the origins, events and outcome of the Battle of Plassey in 1757, a victory which not only established the reputation of Clive of India, but also ensured British pre-eminence in India. The battle has gone down in history as a success against almost ridiculous odds. The book is illustrated with detailed maps and diagrams, and with contemporary drawings and prints.
