Author : Hugh Pearse,H W Pearse. His rising, bright star has always overshadowed the campaigns of Gerard Lake-an accomplished fighting leader of British soldiers now close to the end of his career. Publisher : Leonaur Ltd. Book Price. Often neglected by historians and students alike, Lake's Indian campaign was fought against a resourceful and ruthless enemy-almost always superior in numbers to his own forces. Commanding an army of a few British regular cavalry and infantry regiments, together with elements of the Honourable East India Company's own army, Lake fought hard battles and invested strongly held fortresses. The overarching ambition of Raghunathrao, Peshwa Baji Rao II's father, and the latter's own incompetence since coming into his inheritance, had long caused much internecine intrigue within the Maratha confederacy; Peshwa Baji Rao II no longer commanded the deference his predecessors had.

Lake's Campaigns in Indi : The Second Anglo Maratha War, 1803-1807. In the early years of the nineteenth century as Napoleon's French Army dominated Europe the British empire continued with its expansion of power on the Indian Sub-Continent. by Hugh Wodehouse Pearse.

Warfare in the exotic world of the early days of Britain's Indian Empire. In the early years of the nineteenth century as Napoleon's French Army dominated Europe the British empire continued with its expansion of power on the Indian Sub-Continent. There, a young general-Arthur Wellesley-who would soon become the Duke of Wellington fought his formative battles-including the one which he would always cite as his hardest fought victory at Assaye. The enemy were the formidable Marathas-one of the pre-eminent martial races of India. Wellington was not alone in this pivotal war for Indian domination. His rising, bright star has always overshadowed the campaigns of Gerard Lake-an accomplished fighting leader of British soldiers now close to the end of his career. Often neglected by historians and students alike, Lake's Indian campaign was fought against a resourceful and ruthless enemy-almost always superior in numbers to his own forces. Commanding an army of a few British regular cavalry and infantry regiments, together with elements of the Honourable East India Company's own army, Lake fought hard battles and invested strongly held fortresses. In this book the reader will discover the mighty strongholds of Aligarh, Agra and Deeg, Lakes own Assaye-Laswari, and the slaughter which was the attempt on the nearly impregnable stronghold of Bhurtpur. Lake appears with a host of colourful supporting characters-Perron and other mercenary 'freelancers', James Skinner and his 'Yellow Boys' irregular cavalry, the incompetent Colonel Monson and Holkar-the despotic and cruel Maratha leader himself.
  • This book concerns-as it says on the cover-Lakes Indian campaigns during the Second Maratha War.These occurred at the time Wellington was earning his reputation in the same campaign so will benefit anyone interested in a different aspect of the Napoleonic era.Pearse wrote a biography of Lake which,of course, covers his entire life from childhood to family to AWI service to his suppression of Irish riots.This is not that book and in no way purports to be so-hence it's title.So far as I know that biography does not appear on this site-perhaps the Antiquarian book market.This edition does include an overview by the publishers of Lakes life and career for context.The subject of this book was probably Lake's most significant campaign and of that nothing is omitted so is beyond censure in that respect.The source of this text is clearly referenced in this edition.For those who may be confused:this is a BOOK not a digital text.So readers can access it in their armchairs,on the beach or in the bath if they choose.There are thousands of digital texts available by thousands of authors and a large proportion are also available on this site as books.Those who believe they are a better option than books no more need this fine work as an example of that view than they do the works of Tolstoy and many others.
