The Decisive Battles of India from 1746 to 1849

by Colonel G. B. Malleson

“Nullum numen abest si sit prudentia; nos te, nos facimus, Fortuna, deam.” – Juvenal.


To St Mary’s College, Winton, in whose classic halls I nurtured that love of literature which has been the joy and consolation of my life, and on the hills in whose vicinity I learned to fight my “decisive battles,” this volume is inscribed with reverence and affection.
