Topic: The first anglosikh war and its battlefields


Hi all,
New member of the forum
Hate to plug my book but just thought I'd let any folks interested in British battles and battlefields in India know of "The First AngloSikh War" .
As anyone into AngloIndian battles may know its been a good few years since the last work (Donald Featherstone's At them with the bayonet) came out and theres no battlefield guide books for this entire British empire period.

However in this book i have included a 50 page battlefield guide . I've also included GPS locations of all the important points of the battles e.g positions of Sikh and British lines, villages, British graves and graveyards, war monuments and other landmarks so Google Earth users can browse the battlefields sites at their leisure from their PC's. In fact most of the locations and items can be seen quite clearly using Google Earth as they have high res photos for the Punjab now.

I have also had made new scale maps of the battlefields for the book using satellite pics with battle lines superimposed on the modern roads and canals etc that crisscross through these sites now giving the reader a better understanding of how they have evolved

Anyway I hope its of interest and if anyone does read it and have any comments I would be most grateful for any feedback.
