Opis produktu:

Contemporary account of Britain’s colonial exploits in early 19th-century Burma This was a period when the British were completely engrossed in the lands beyond their charted knowledge. They had established themselves in a formidable position in India through the English East India Company and were now looking to make their presence felt further east. The prospect of Burma coming under the Union Jack was perceived to be the most probable, and therefore soon after their consolidation act in India, they extended their gaze over the horizon, leading to one of the most transcendental wars in history, the Burmese War. Major John James Snodgrass started by maintaining a journal to document the new lands that he came across on his eastward voyage from Bengal in India, whilst he was with Major-General Sir Archibald’s army, but what he then managed to scribble were the precise details of a historical war. Captured from the army’s landing at Rangoon in May 1824 to the Treaty of Peace at Yandaboo in February 1826, this book is perhaps the most detailed first-hand visualisation of the war, making it an imperative collector’s edition. About the Author Major Snodgrass’ book was first published in 1852, and was immediately lauded as a great new addition to the library of British military history. His record is a rare and defining treatment of a unique period of warfare.
