Armies of the East India Company 1750-1850 Paperback
by Stuart Reid
Illustrated by Gerry Embleton
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
Contrary to popular belief, the capture of India was not accomplished by the British Army, but by the private armies of the East India Company, which grew in size to become larger than that of any European sovereign state.
This is the history of this army, examining the many conflicts they fought, their equipment and training, with its regiments of horse, foot and guns, which rivalled those of most European powers.
The uniforms, combining traditional Indian and British dress are illustrated in detail and make for a colourful account of a private band of adventurers that successfully captured the jewel of the British Empire.
