The First Anglo-Sikh War broke out due to escalating tensions between the Sikh Empire and the British East India Company in the Punjab region of India in the mid-nineteenth century. Political machinations were at the heart of the conflict, with Sikh rulers fearing the growing power of their own army, while several prominent Sikh generals actively collaborated with the East India Company. The British faced a disciplined opponent, trained along European lines, which fielded armies numbering in the tens of thousands. The war featured a number of closely contested battles, with both sides taking heavy losses. This fully illustrated study of the First Anglo-Sikh War tells the story of one of the major colonial wars of the nineteenth century, as the East India Company attempted to wrest control of the Punjab region from a Sikh Empire riven by infighting.

As well as the account of the fighting it contains many unflattering comments about the Punjab and its inhabitants, who were for Coley simply 'heathen', but interesting observations on Indian manners, customs and ancient monuments.

The Sutlej Campaign - also known as the first Anglo-Sikh War of 1845/46 - was the showdown between two expanding and rival Indian powers - Britain's East India Company, and the Sikh kingdom of the Punjab. The great Sikh ruler, Ranjit Singh, had expanded his kingdom and built the Punjab into a formidable military power at the same time as the Company was growing around his borders. After Ranjit's death in 1839, the kingdom fell into disorder, and the Company took advantage of the chaos to move in. Coley was an East India Company chaplain. His journal covers the battles of Moodkee and Ferozeshah, and the aftermath of the campaign. As well as the account of the fighting it contains many unflattering comments about the Punjab and its inhabitants, who were for Coley simply 'heathen', but interesting observations on Indian manners, customs and ancient monuments.

Presents a consolidated timeline of medieval India by taking into account the period that marked the end of ancient India, and focusing on the importance of the transitory centuries when Delhi had begun to surface as the new power center, triggering prominent trends in thought and institutions. This book analyzes the nature of social forces, complexity of causation and the interdependence of change and continuity in the light of the crucial transition from ancient to early medieval India, with the emergence of the Delhi Sultanate and the Vijayanagar-Bahmani kingdoms. Proceeding to detail the most effervescent period in Indian history - the era of the great Mughals - the text provides an insight into the ideological-philosophical basis of the times, focusing on the Sufi and Bhakti movements, and culminates with the rise of the Marathas, the advent of European companies, and the eventual establishment of the British in Bengal. keeping in mind that the history of medieval India has not moved in a linear fashion, and that much of the period saw phases of expansion and realignment of political attributes, this book contributes to a deeper understanding of the much misread period of Indian history with a view that takes into account the resultant interface between the political, social, economic, religious and cultural elements and devotes to this crucial period the attention it deserves.
