Battles of the Maratha Empire

A book about the pivotal battles fought by the Maratha Empire from 1659 to 1818.

An engrossing read. While much has been written on this topic, Aneesh takes us to the lesser known yet important battles and campaigns which dictated politics in this country for two centuries.

Smt Yashodhara Raje Scindia

“A wonderfully readable collection of essays about the Maratha era. The collection is an important antidote to the mainstream narrative that the British conquered India from the Mughals; a story-line that was deliberately created in the colonial era to suggest that India was always an enslaved country. Aneesh has deftly torn down this biased history to present a vivid picture of dogged resistance against waves of foreign colonizers.”

Sanjeev Sanyal , author and economist

Aneesh Gokhale’s new book lucidly narrates a hundred and fifty years of Maratha military history. Supported by maps, the book gives the reader an insight into the important battles that led the Marathas to an Empire.

Dr Uday Kulkarni

Painstakingly meticulous research and eminently lucid narration are hallmarks of Aneesh’s writing. He is doing yeoman service by filling some of the abysmal gaps in our knowledge about our own rich history

Lt Col Rohit Agarwal (Retd)

Aneesh Gokhale’s book shows how political and cultural power are interlinked. One cannot endure without the other. This is a lesson for India’s modern day cultural revivalists
