An outstanding survey of the colonial wars involving the British Empire in the 19th century.
Formerly an officer in the Maratha Army, Skinner raised two cavalry units for the British, later known as 1st and 2nd Skinner’s Horse. Swords are rather thin on the ground in this one, but the beautiful and functional furniture makes up for that.
It provides a good overview of many of the campaigns as well as vignettes on individual soldiers (mostly officers). Excellent synopses of various conflicts, organized by geographic area, excellent photos and illustrations, glossary, bibliography, etc., and good concise guides to the organization of the British and Indian armies.
Towards the end of his life, although promoted to colonel and created a CB by the British, Skinner was conscious that his mixed race status had denied him the highest rewards for his military skills and leadership.NAM Accession NumberNAM.
