Burma during the 1792-1815 period

Postby Mark » June 20th, 2014, 7:16 pm

Although war with Burma did not erupt until 1824, I have been reading about Anglo-Burmese relations during our period of interest. It appears that the East India Company continued to pursue a line of peace with Burma, despite several invasions by Burmese troops into British territory over refugee disputes, in the hope of securing trade and the exclusion of French ships/trade with Ava and Pegu etc. Perhaps this, along with many other parts in and around India, is sadly neglected aspect of our period?

I believe it is Mark,

This, and the Java expedition, all the way through the Gurkha war to this is hard to find info of. As such I don't know much about it, except that the company took Rangoon and things got a bit sticky. Allot of the threads in this section ( some by me) appeal for more info on such matters. They are interesting subjects.

Up the Irrawaddy is a fictional story by G E Henty (not sure if that's the right spelling) he was a prolific writer in the late 19th early 20th century and wrote lots of stories on British history re known for his detailed research on the given subject.
He wrote a few on the period including Waterloo they are real boys own type stories but carry a lot of facts such as battles, regiments, places, dates, etc.
Up the Irrawaddy is all about the war with Burma and it's loaded with info
You can listen for free as an audio book on libravox the free on line library to a few of his books
Enjoy
History is a window we can only look through

Here's a tip for those wanting info on the 4th Anglo Mysore War, every book about Wellington worth it's salt includes the siege of Seringapatam, and books like Weller's and Longford's also include the battles on the advance. So a good way to read about this campaign is to get Wellington bios, or I suppose look at Sultan Tipu.
