Unfortunately this aspect of the ancient Indian aimed forces has not received due consideration. Using archaeological material, the indigenous sources and the accounts left by foreign travellers, the present study is an attempt to gain critical insights into the issues relating to organisation, equipment, training and administration of the armies from the epic age to the medieval period of Indian history. The work is divided into five sections; (1) Organisation of forces including the procedure of their recruitment; (2) Equipment includingdress, arms and ammunition, animals, war vehicles, Camp and fort; (3) Trai ning of the forces; (4) Problems relating to movement of forces durmg the war; (5) Glossary of officers and Departments that controlled the armed forces. It also mentions the rules of services, different grades, rules of promotion, termination and privileges the forces used to enjoy during differentperiods. This volume provides a comprehensive account of the various aspec ts of the ancient Indian armies and will be useful to the students of defence studies, and military history of India; archaeologists; and Museum librarians who would like to preserve these documents."
