In this audiobook, the astonishing chronicle of the Sikh Empire unfolds, revealing a story of valor, resilience, and the fierce clash of empires. This audiobook is a portal to a bygone era, where the Sikh Army, hailed as the most formidable Indian force the British ever encountered, carved a 200,000-square-mile empire in the heart of the Punjab.

Embark on a Journey Through Time

  • Witness the birth of the Sikh faith through the divine visions of Guru Nanak and how it evolved into a warrior creed under the guidance of the gurus.
  • Marvel at the strategic prowess of Ranjit Singh, the one-eyed lion of the Punjab, who rose to forge a formidable Sikh Empire after inheriting a kingdom at the age of twelve.

In this audiobook:

  • Unravel the tale of Ranjit Singh's youngest queen, the beautiful daughter of the palace dog keeper, and how she became a powerful and able regent for her infant son, the last maharaja of the Punjab.
  • Discover how Irish General Gough led the British forces in India to victory over the Sikhs and why his statue was blown up by the Irish Republican Army a century later.
  • Relive the strategic brilliance and tragic betrayal within the Sikh ranks.
  • Experience the fury of the Sikh artillery and the heart-wrenching separation of Maharani Jind Kaur from her son.
  • Follow the odyssey of the legendary Koh-i-Noor diamond from Ranjit Singh's vault to the hands of British conquerors.
