Pathan Rising Nominated for Book Award

Postby Mark » 05 Dec 2017 10:34

Dear All

My book Pathan Rising: Jihad on the North West Frontier of India 1897-1898 has been nominated for a military history book award in the UK. Please take a look at the link below, and if you feel my book deserves a vote it would be greatly appreciated.

https://www.military-history.org/books/ ... s-2018.htm

Naturally, as the author of the book, I would love to win an award, but I also think it would be good for promoting our period of interest. Most new military books these days tend to focus on the First or Second World Wars, and there are relatively few that examine events of the Victorian period.

Thanking you all in advance.

Mark

Well done and very good luck - any mention of the Anglo-Boer War? ;)

I'd like to cover all of it, but in several volumes. However, I have a two-volume title to work on first, so it wouldn't happen for a few years.
