ABOUT THIS BOOK

A wonderful account of Ranjit Singh – the regal aura of the king himself, his grand military generals and ministers, the magnificence of his palace, his state and above all his strikingly disciplined and splendidly dressed army. The book is an unparalleled tribute to the supreme majesty and splendour of the Lion of Punjab, which did not fail to impress even the British. This is a reprint.

Osborne accompanied other high-ranking British officials on a mission to Ranjit Singh’s state in 1838 with the aim to persuade him to form an alliance with the British.
