Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 185753008X, Hardcover)

From the elimination of the French presence in Bengal and the Carnatic in 1756 to the defeat of the Turco-German Jihad by Allenby in 1918, the control of the roads to India, by land and sea, was a major preoccupation of British defence policy. This book describes how some of the greatest campaigns and most notable battles in British history were fought in fulfilment of that policy - events which are all too easily forgotten in a world that has changed so dramatically since the outbreak of World War II.
