Slim though this unit history is, it covers a lot of ground - from the raising of the battalions of this distinguished Indian regiment by that brilliant soldier Gen. Sir Charles Napier in 1844 down to the campaign against a post-Second World War Communist takeover of Greece in 1944-46. En route, the Battalion saw service on many a bloodstained battlefield including campaigns against their fellow countrymen around the famous North-West frontier in the 19th century, to both world wars. A fascinating history of a fierce fighting unit which will be snapped up by all those interested in India and her soldiers.
