A history of the period of Sikh rule starting from the time of Banda Bhadur to the end of the Sikh Kingdom with the deportation of the young Maharaja Duleep Singh and the annexation of Punjab by the British.

The Sikh community can take pride in its past history. The Sikh Gurus, Generals, Jathedars and Sikh soldiers shed their blood for sustaining the community and laid firm foundations for its survival.

The ignorance of the Sikh youth of the past deeds of valor and invincible bravery displayed by their ancestors is deplorable. The students of Khalsa schools and colleges are well-acquainted with four centuries of British history but are not conversant with the recent history of their own community. This work is an effort to overcome this shortcoming so that growing youngsters can enrich themselves with the knowledge of the part played by their forefathers in the building, sustenance and survival of their own community.
