Ebook: War in Ancient India

Filed under: Ebooks — Yogeshwar Shastri @ 9:37 pm

I found this gem of a book on Delhi Universitys DSPACE site.It gives a very good idea of warfare in ancient India.For a fuller understanding it is best if you read it in conjunction with Kautilya’s “Arthashastra”.( freely availaible as a downloadable pdf here: Arthashastra of Kautilya)

War in Ancient India

    • Hi Sudarshan,

      I am looking to get Maj Gen Sandhus books as well ( he has written two one on ancient India and one on mediveal India).
      If you are going to India,have a look on the publishers website which is : http://www.visionbooksindia.com/

      its showing as availiable,but check with them before ordering.His books are highly recommneded by a lot of military buffs.
