Past in Perspective

Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles,

–Sun Tzu

The battle of Plassey took place in 1757 when the British East India Company fought the Nawab of Bengal, Siraj-ud-Daulah with the help of his deceitful commander in chief, Mir Jafar. After winning the battle, the company was able to take control of all of the Indian continent through time.
