India: Books Of Interest

I've been doing some background reading before I start work on the sepoys and native troops.

Firstly a good read on the life of' Lord Clive, Colonel G.B. Malleson; published orginally in 1893,
Malleson also wrote a book about the frenchman Dupleix  (Title: Rulers of India, Dupleix).

Secondly 'Britains Army In India' by James P Lawford, covers the period from the inception of the East India company up to the end of the Seven Years War.
