Check out December's Military History Magazine
One of my Dad's co-workers presented him a copy December's edition of Military History Magazine. It covers an in depth article on the second Anglo-Sikh War and is a good read. The article ends in a interesting fashion laying the foundation how the British were keen to note how brave the Sikh rivals were and how they could be used towards future services, hence paving the way for Sikhs to serve alongside the Brits in liberating Europe from the Axis Powers during World War 2.
And it is ironic today how so many people have forgotten this, especially France. It's sad how so many soldierse can sacrifice their lives for another Nation only to be forgotten in history. Unfortunately France has a nationwide policy that bans religious symbols to be displayed publically. This includes both at school and in official government issued identification cards, and it has hurt the Sikh community in France badly. Especially since so many British Sikh soliders helped to liberate their country.
But as the France issue continues, the Anglo-Sikh War in Military History is captured below. Enjoy the read:
