In 1971 he went 'back to school', gaining an MA from the School of Oriental and African Studies and a PhD from Edinburgh University. For some years he taught art and architectural history at Yarmuk University, Jordan. David has written many Osprey titles, including MAA 140 Armies of the Ottoman Turks, MAA 320 Armies of the Caliphates 862-1098, and Campaign 43 Fornovo 1495. Angus McBride is one of the world's most respected historical illustrators, and has contributed to more than 70 Osprey titles in the past three decades.

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.

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.

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.
