From the bestselling author of Tommy and Redcoat, a magnificent and rich history of the British soldier in India from Clive to the end of empire, making full use of personal accounts of soldiers who served in the vast and varied nation that made up the jewel in Britain's imperial crown. Sahib is a broad and sweeping military history of the British soldier in India, but its From the bestselling author of Tommy and Redcoat, a magnificent and rich history of the British soldier in India from Clive to the end of empire, making full use of personal accounts of soldiers who served in the vast and varied nation that made up the jewel in Britain's imperial crown.
Sahib is a broad and sweeping military history of the British soldier in India, but its focus, like that of Tommy and Redcoat before it, will be on the men who served in India and the women who followed them across that vast and dusty continent, bore their children, and, all too often, mopped their brows as they died. The book begins with the remarkable story of India's rise from commercial enclave to great Empire, from Clive's victory of Plassey, through the imperial wars of the eighteenth century and the Afghan and Sikh Wars of the s, through the bloody turmoil of the Mutiny, and the frontier campaigns at the century's end.
With its focus on the experience of ordinary soldiers, Sahib explains to us why soldiers of the Raj had joined the army, how they got to India and what they made of it when they arrived. Making full use of extensive and often neglected archive material in the India Office Library and National Army Museum, Sahib will do for the British soldier in India - whether serving a local ruler, forming part of the Indian army, or soldiering with a British regiment - what Tommy has done for the ordinary soldier in the First World War.

Sort order. Sep 01, Chris rated it it was amazing Shelves: empire-uk , hist-misc , military. Sep 04, Julie Bozza rated it it was amazing Shelves: india , research-india , wartime. Huuuge and well worth reading. Many insights into the daily lives of the British soldiers in India, and glimpses at all that surrounded them. Just the sort of thing I need for researching a novel! Apr 02, Ian rated it really liked it Shelves: history-military , history-uk. Read this primarily because a number of my ancestors served in India - Richard Holmes is an excellent military historian.
Jan 14, Neil rated it liked it Shelves: asia , india , reference , war. Exhaustive and exhausting. The writer has clearly decided to tell us everything I would say it's over-researched, in fact. The biggest problem is sorting out a timeline. The subjects flit from decade to decade constantly, which rather spoils any sense of continuation, or gradual change. Jan 13, Gareth rated it really liked it. Jul 15, Anil Dhingra rated it really liked it Shelves: books I always enjoy reading about the British soldiers in India.
This book is yet another addition to narrative based on the diaries and letters of the soldiers and ends at the time of the first world war. However it's authentic, informative and goes to the psyche behind the decision of the British to travel to India.
