The Sikhs And Afghans

Description This book, based on the eye-witness account of Sikh invasion of Afghanistan towards the fag-end of Maharaja Ranjeet Singh, gives a very detailed account of Sikh-Afghan battles and their political relations. The account extends to the post Ranjit Singh period for about a decade. Since the account is both comprehensive and based on the recordings of an eye-witnessing his journal, it is a very authentic and one of the primary sources of Punjab Sikh history of first half of nineteenth century. It brings alive the glory and magnificence of Lahore Durbar, role influence and machinations of Dogra brothers, Sikh military expedition to Kabul, death of Hari Singh Nalwa, Sikh Afghan battles, death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and post Maharaja Sikh-Afghan encounters the whole account is so gripping as if the reader is witnessing an audio-visual presentation of the dramatic events. The author, being bilingual scholar of both Persian and English, his observation and expression of events is excellent. The book is indispensable for scholars and researchers of Punjab/Sikh history[edit]
