Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Henry Dallals photography evokes here an age-old world where the horse reigns supreme. At the heart of this book is the mounted cavalry, a professional elite that embodies Indias history, upholding ceremonial pageantry and equestrian skill as part of the countrys armed forces. The 61st Cavalry is an extraordinary body of soldiers in that it is one of the worlds few remaining active mounted cavalry regiments. From the traditional horse and camel fairs in the Thar Desert to the cool Victorian interiors of Babugarh Breeding Crente; from the nomadic Nihang warriors mounted on Indias indigenous Marwari horses to the international polo fields of Jaipur; from the regiments operational duties on patrol to its ceremonial function at the annual Republic Day Parade, Dallals photographic record portrays a little-known aspect of modern India where past and present stand vividly together, as well as a unique insight into the day-to-day life of an active cavalry regiment. This beautiful book will appeal to all who have an interest in military history of a love of horses.
