Handbooks For The Indian Army

Description The Sikhs, being known as a martial race famous for their valour, grit and loyalty, constituted a size-able section of the Indian Army during the British rule. The ruling British made its British officers conversant with the religious racial and social ethos of the Sikh soldiers in order to facilitate an efficient command of Sikh soldiers. This booklet highlights the racial stock, history, religion, Castes, ceremonies and customs of the Sikhs. The account is quite informative based on reliable statistics and sound knowledge about the Sikhs. It is a guidebook for the British officers commanding Sikh troops[edit]
