The History Of The Sikhs

Description This historical account of the Sikhs written by a British doctor brings out the bare outlines of Sikh history from its origin up to the 1846. The whole account seems to be somewhat biased and distorted. For instance, the author's version tells us that Guru Gobind got tired of his existence after his defeats and asked a Pathan to kill him. The account is full of such statements about Sikh Gurus and the Sikhs. On the other hand it celebrates the bravery and grit of British army. Despite all these distortions, it is a monumental effort to describe the major part of Sikh history. English expression is archaic, full of complex sentence constructions which create difficulties for the readers[edit]
Keywords Guru Nanak, Guru Gobind Singh, Banda Bairagi, Confederacies, Bhangi Misl, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Ferozepur, Mudkee, Alliwal, Sabraon, [edit]
