9781848325074: Lessons in Imperial Rule: Instructions for British Infantrymen on the Indian Frontier

'Don't be misled into believing that the camel is an evil brute without guts, who lies down and dies just to spite you. I know a lot about the camel, and I know him to be a lion-hearted beast who will not lie down to die until he knows he is dying'.

A delightful collection of guidelines for British troops based in India, Lessons in Imperial Rule was first published in the early 1900s. It was addressed to the junior officer serving Infantry battalions who faced more than 80 years of armed peace and fierce war along the northwest frontier. Despite the later introduction of armored cars, light tanks and aircraft, Skeen's work has lost none of its value and was recently reissued by the Pakistani Army. The lessons explained include the various aspects of work in establishing new camps, securing perimeters, moving platoons, setting up watching posts, methods of foraging and demolition, and emergency occupation of villages.
