This is the fourth volume in what has now become the ultimate reference series on "native" armies of nineteenth century Asia. This time the subject is mainland South East Asia, with the armies of Burma, Vietnam, Siam, Cambodia and the Lao and Shan states, plus minor tribal groups, being covered in considerable depth.

There are details of each army's history, organisation, tactics, dress and arms supported by 168 drawings of warrior types and 75 photographs, illustrations and maps, plus comprehensive bibliographies.


"This book... is of practical value to family historians... this certainly provides an excellent overview..."
