Book Description

25 Nov 1993 Men-at-arms (Book 263)
Babur, the founder of the Mughul dynasty, was of Turco-Mongol origin - he was descended from Timur-i-Lenk [Tamerlane] on his father's side and Genghiz Khan on his mother's. His first raid into India in 1516 was followed by several others, and by the time of his death in 1530 Babur's troops had reached Bengal on the far side of the sub-continent. With eight fine full page colour plates by Angus McBride, and many other illustrations, this text by David Nicolle examines the organisation, tactics and uniforms of Mughul armies from Babur's time onwards.

3.0 out of 5 stars A piece of India's history... 23 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I felt this book was an interesting document for anybody interested in Indian history. The illustrations by Angus McBride kept it fresh, but it was altogether too short. I must admit, I have read better books on the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mughul India- David Nicolle and Angus Mc Bride 21 May 2000
By Dilip Susruta Samarasinghe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book very interesting and a good introduction to the type of warfare being waged for the control of the Indian Subcontinent in the period under review. The warfare waged by the Mughul Emperors was a continuation of the traditions of their ancestors from the Mongol steppes. Of course it shows the evolution from the age of Babur the founder of the Mughul Dynasty to the later emperors.The role of the cavalry is highlighted as well as the infantry and artillery. Of particular interest is the utilization of elephants in warfare which is decribed in great detail. I also liked the drawings which I believe are among the most beautiful in any of the Osprey series. These are often based on beautiful Mughul and Persian miniatures found in museums and collections around the world. There are also some photos of Mughul armour, fortresses and other areas of interest. My favourite is a photo of an elephant armour, perhaps the only one of its kind, in the tower of London. It follows Dr Nicolle,s high standard of historical analysis.

By Saif T. Beg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a brilliant source of information and of pictures as my field is includes this information. It is well detailed, the army deployment and pictures are excellent and overall it is a very good book. Though it is not Babaru-Nama, it is a good source of information. A 5/5 for this book.
