The Military in British India: The Development of British Land Forces in South Asia, 1600-1947
Manchester University Press, 1995 - 288 sider
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.
