Sons of John Company: The Indian and Pakistan Armies 1903-91
Britisk/indisk/pakistansk militærhistorie. Om den engelske hær i Indien, og de indiske og pakistanske hære, navnlig fra 1903 til 1991, men også baggrundshistorien fra starten på Indian Army, nemlig "John Company", the East India Company, i 1600. Indien og Pakistan blev som bekendt selvstændige i 1947, og overtog samtidig de indiske og pakistanske hære, hidtil engelsk dominerede, styret, organiseret, med engelske militære traditioner, regimentshistorie, m.m. Stort set siden selvstændigheden har de to lande været i mere eller mindre væbnet konflikt med hinanden "behind ramparts of ever-more expensive stockpiles of imported weaponry. Despite this, the same jawans remains in the ranks, still proud of their military calling and still in their old bataillions, bearing in some cases still the names of the British officers who raised them a century ago. This book endeavour to show how the Indian Army was created and what happened to it after Partition until the present day."
