The British-Indian Army 1860-1914 by Peter Duckers
For over a hundred years the British maintained a powerful military system in India. If it is recalled at all in the popular imagination of today, the Victorian Indian Army is remembered as much for its use in the pomp and ceremony of grand imperial occasions as for anything else-as a colourful adjunct to the parades, processions and rituals of British India. This book provides a glimpse into a complex, multi-layered and enveloping institution and offers an introduction to the uniforms, arms and services of the Indian Army at the height of the Raj.
