Fauj-I-Khas: Maharaja Ranjit Singh and his French Officers
Fauj-I-Khas: Maharaja Ranjit Singh and his French Officers
Description
FOREWORD:

Maharaja Ranjit singh was a strong supporter of new ideas and trends. He was therefore, quick to respond to the exigencies of political situation prevailing in the Punjab during the early 19th century. He created a strong and disciplined army and well coordinated administration.He, in persuit of his objectives, inducted into his service a large number of Europeans whose talent was employed in modernizing civil and military administration of the Kingdom of Lahore.Among the Europeanthere dwere a good number of the French. The French officers, both civil and military, contributed significantly towards the modernnization of the army of the Maharaja Ranjit Singh

I am glad that Jean-Marie Lafont has underscored the contribution of French Officers, particularly General Allard and Colonel Mouton.This book I believe is a landmark in tracing the historic relationship between India and France. I congratulate Dr. Lafont for preparing this book for Guru Nanak Dev University.

I am sure this book will be received well by the students and researchers of the history of Punjab.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
