In this classic study of the conflicts that established British rule in South Asia, Heathcote places the campaigns for control of the Mughal Empire up to the Revolt of 1857 in their local context, eschewing the Euro-centric approach of many historians. He also deals with the disputes between British governments at home and between the civil governments and military in India; and he examines the controversies over the army's composition, organization and political control up to Indian Independence.
