Wellington and the British Army's Indian Campaigns 1798 - 1805
by Howard, Martin
Covers the 1798-1805 campaigns of Arthur Wellesley - later the Duke of Wellington - and General Lake in the Deccan and Hindustan. While it fully acknowledges Wellington's vital role, it also addresses the nature of the warring armies, the significance of the campaigns of Lake in North India, and leaves the reader with an understanding of the human experience of war in the region. For this was a brutal conflict in which British armies clashed with the formidable forces of the Sultan of Mysore and the Maratha princes. There were dramatic pitched battles at Assaye, Argaum, Delhi and Laswari, and epic sieges at Seringapatam, Gawilghur and Bhurtpore. The British success was not universal.1 vol, 272 pgs 2020 UK, PEN & SWORD
