This remarkable collection of over 120 images commemorates the 300th anniversary of the Sikh Brotherhood. The history of the Sikh prowess in war is documented in photographs covering 150 years, supplemented by early prints and paintings. Quotes from the Sikh Gurus and from allies and foes of the Sikh soldiers, detailed captions, and a brief commentary trace the spiritual and ethical origins of the Sikh call-to-arms, the martyrdoms and conflict of the Mughal period, the founding of the Khalsa by Guru Gobind Singh, the Afghan and Persian invasions, the rise of the Sikh kingdoms and the British Raj, the Anglo-Sikh wars, and the contributions of Sikhs in both World Wars and more recent international conflicts.
