Soldiers of the Raj is a unique record detailing the lives of some 1100 British subjects who died in the service of the Indian Empire, and who are immortalised on graves and monuments in that far off land.Originally published in two parts (1910 and 1912) in the Indian Monumental Inscription Series, this work is now very rare indeed and makes a welcome return, in this new printing to the shelves of historians, researchers and devotees of Empire history and biography. The geographical coverage – Punjab, North-West Frontier Province, Kashmir and Afghanistan – encompasses most of the major military actions of British India from the two Sikh Wars to the Mutiny, the Second Afghan War and the recurrent skirmishing and raiding that characterised the North-West Frontier. The value and importance of this work cannot be underestimated.
