British & Indian Armies in the East Indies, 1685-1935
As with many imperial enterprises, the British relied on those they had already subjugated to help them expand further afield to subjugate a few more. Here Harfield details how the British empire in Asia expanded eastwards from its base in India so as to become a major power in the Malay Archipelago. Both British and Indian troops fought side by side so as to threaten the established Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese spheres of influence. Near Fine Hardback in a Near Fine Dust Jacket. First Edition. 411 pages with some maps and black and white plates. For further details please see the scanned contents page.
