New book 'The Second Anglo-Sikh War'

For all discussions relating to the First and Second Anglo-Sikh Wars of 1845-46 and 1848-49.

New book 'The Second Anglo-Sikh War'

Postby Amarpal Sidhu » 14 Jul 2016 11:27

Hello everybody,

For those interested in the Anglo-Sikh wars, I just thought I'd flag up the release of my new book 'The Second Anglo-Sikh War' a few days ago.

I've tried to cover the campaign in as much detail as I could so I hope it pleases those readers who would like an in-depth account of the battles. There is plenty there also for those who like to read around the politics and personalities of the period as well.

As in the previous book, I've also included several hundred GPS locations at the back as I always find examining a battlefield or related points of interest and working out what was happening much more enjoyable on Google Earth.

So all in all I hope it proves useful and interesting to those who'd like to learn more on this war.

It's available on Amazon and other book sites.

Kind regards

Amarpal

I'm in. Thank you Amarpal I shall look forward to that. I hope you gave Chillianwallah a good run out. (I'm sure you will have done).
Thanks for investing all the effort that goes into such an endeavour. I wish you well with it.

Best wishes,

Mike

Hi Mike,

Thanks for that and glad it's piqued your interest :)
Yes Chillianwalla is covered pretty well as I knew folks would probably appreciate a thorough going over on that bit. I've also covered the sieges of Multan city in good detail as those tend to get less attention in previous accounts sadly.

I am very lucky to have a signed copy of this book, and although I have yet to finish reading it I can already say it is excellent!

Definitely one for the home library!

Congratulations, Amarpal!

Hi Amarpal
My copy has arrived in Australia and it looks great. However I,m about to head off to UK and France and a proper reading will have to wait for my return in October.

Cheers
