I bought the Kindle edition while touring around Southern India, and I wanted to learn more about Wellington's time in India. The book gave a clear overview of both the military and political situation and events. I also learned a lot about his brother, Richard who was Governor General of India.
I rate as only 4 stars because the Kindle edition had technical problems with dates, many appear as "on the nth" One or two typos were also annoying. Secondly, a few maps would have helped.
Overall, I would recommend, as the book is well written and informative.

I am not qualified to review it, but I was satisfied that it provided me with a detailed history of Arthur Wellesley's Indian campaigns. I would recommend Jak Weller's other two books, 'Wellington in the Peninsula' and 'Wellington at Waterloo'. Between them the hree books give sufficient information on Wellington's military career for the interested amateur.
