The Exploring India series of books are delicious, bite-sized portions of history that will interest every reader who wants to know more about various facets of India.

Battles and Warriors takes the reader on a journey through the events that led to, and the descriptions of, five major battles that took place in India: Alexander vs Porus, Ashoka vs the Kingdom of Kalinga, Rajendra Chola vs the Kingdom of Srivijaya, Babur vs Ibrahim Lodi and Siraj-ud-Daula vs the East India Company.

Find out why these battles occurred, the strategies that were employed, the arms and armour used by the warriors, the aftereffects of these battles and how they shaped the course of Indian history.

Concise yet filled with relevant details and accompanied by attractive colour illustrations, the Exploring India series will make history fascinating and unforgettable for every reader.
