Orders of Battle | First and Second Opium Wars

Postby Mark » 14 Mar 2017 14:00

Can anyone point me in the direction of reliable sources that show the British orders of battle for both the First and Second Opium/Anglo-Chinese Wars?

Information on Chinese forces would also be welcome if available.

Thank you in advance!

Fortescue deals with the First China war in Ch.XXXI, Book 16 of his History of the British Army
found here
https://archive.org/stream/historyofbri ... 2/mode/2up

OBs on pp. 308, 318 & 319

I'm afraid I can't find the relevant volume for the 2nd China war online.


Hope that is of some help.

Brilliant! Thank you, jf42 :D

I just need the Second China War OBs now, if anyone knows of a source?

The FIBIS Fibiwiki has Volume 13 of Fortescue, above, covering the period 1853 to 1870 as

https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.236131 Archive.org or
http://www.new.dli.ernet.in/handle/2015/236131 DLI Same file Pdf download in both cases, although in time, the Archive.org file will be able to be read online.

FIBIS Fibiwiki also contains a page 2nd China War
