“In this little book I have attempted to give a brief sketch, of the history, ethnology, customs, characteristics, of the fighting races of India, so as to give the young British officer an idea of the material of which the native my is composed. There are several works extant dealing in the martial races of the country, such as those of Hodgson, Dr. Wright, Genl. Cunningham, and others; but these are as a rule not easily available, and moreover technical expositions meant for historical and scientific purposes rather than practical treatises for the practical soldier”. – Excerpt from Author’s Preface
