Additional Information

By the time Queen Victoria came to the throne, India – some 1,600,000 square miles, ranging from soaring mountains to deserts and jungle swamps, populated by 400,000,000 people with a kaleidoscope of different cultures and religions – was firmly in the grip of a handful of British East India Company administrators, either ruling directly or through Indian nominees. However, the Company's search for a policy in western India embroiled it in a string of military campaigns, including one of the worst disasters ever to befall a British army. Ian Knight's fascinating text examines the absorbing, dramatic and brutal history of the Company's exploits against Victoria's Indian enemies.

Interesting stuff. Learned a few things.
Standard research fare. Got what I needed, as usual.
nice !!
This Osprey volume covers a somewhat miscellaneous collection of enemies faced by Britain in the mid-late 19th Century from Egypt to Kenya, notable among them being the fearsome Asantes, the Abyssinians, and the fanatical Muslim Madhists, as well as some minor tribes and the following of the rebel Egyptian leader Ahmed 'Urabi.

The text provides good coverage of the often inadequate arms of these peoples as well as their respective fighting styles, and the how's and when's of their surpressions. The color plates particularly impressed me as well, being very life-like and colorful.
