Rivals Of The Raj: Non-British Colonial Armies in Asia 1497-1941 [Hardcover]

Peter Abbott , Kevin Dallimore , Ian Heath

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

31 Aug 2010
Covering those Asian armies which fought alongside the British, from the foundations laid in 1497 to the demise of company rule. This book traces the developments in the structure, armament, and uniforms of the armies maintained by the imperial powers in Asia throughout the colonial period, with illustrative order of battle material wherever possible. The evolutionary development of the armies which maintained the colonial powers extraordinary ascendency in the East for four and a half centuries has seldom been surveyed as a whole, and certainly not in the kind of organisational detail included in this book.
