Notes

First edition. " another of Rawlinson's well researched and finely composed Indian Army unit histories. He covers the period from 1778 to 1940 in uniform detail, with many minor actions and individual acts of gallantry highlighted in the narrative. The principal campaigns described are - First Sikh War (1845-7), Second China War (1860), Egypt (1882), Third China War (1900), and then Aden and Mesopotamia in WWI" (Perkins). A nice copy, the fragile jacket is seldom present.
