Daniel Sandford's is an essential daily journal kept by a young officer of the 2nd Bengal European Regiment during the campaign which finally brought about the fall of the kingdom of the Sikhs in the Second Sikh War. It described the battles of Ramnuggar, Chillianwallah and Gujerat in fearsome detail from the perspective of an elite fighting infantry regiment. Sandford brings a fresh insight into the detail of the progression of the campaign. His scenes of camp life are particularly fascinating for students of British military history in the Victorian era. This is a rare book about a little covered war.
