East India Company Cavalry The officers and men in these units are Europeans, not locals, even though these regiments are raised in India. They are supposedly more reliable than native levies when defending European interests.

Company cavalry are equipped in European rather than Indian fashion; they fight as light, sabre-armed cavalry. Their tasks include acting as scouts, screening the main body of an army, and pursuing fleeing enemies – taking a sabre to someone already running away is likely to keep him running! It is not their main job to break enemy units or to fight other cavalry.

By 1700, the great European trading companies were so huge they could afford armies of their own, separate from the national army. The British East India Company, the Dutch “Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie” (VOC) and the French “La Compagnie française des Indes orientales” all had armies, fleets and forts in India and the far east. The Dutch felt it profitable to have one fifth of their employees in uniform, and the other companies were not far behind.

1 Barracks army-admin 1 0
A national army requires central organisation, if only for pay and rations. Regiments may be the preserve of their commanding officers, but the functionaries control the purse strings!
2 Drill School army-admin 2 0
A drill school creates the common practices for an army, and turns a collection of disparate forces into a precise and clockwork killing machine.
3 Military Academy army-admin 3 0
A military academy is a training establishment for young officers, those who must rely on talent, rather than connections or wealth, for preferment.
4 Army Board army-admin 4 0
This is the centre of the army’s bureaucracy, where clerks and secretaries of state labour to make the fighting soldiers’ lives as awkward as possible!
5 Army Staff College army-admin 5 1
This institution educates soldiers in more advanced aspects of warfare, not just in the theory of tactics.
6 Military Governor's Barracks government_minor 3 0
Barracks provide more than simple housing blocks for regular military forces. The buildings also serve to remind the local people who is in charge.
7 Royal Palace government_minor 4 0
The residence of a sovereign should inspire awe and dread in equal measure, overwhelming lesser men by its magnificence.
