Battle of Plassey is the most critical war mentioned in the dark pages of Indian history, as this war turned the country into the slave under the British rule for about long period of two centuries.
The Battle of Plassey took place on June 23, 1757 at Palashi village of Murshidabad, on the bank of Bhagirathi River between British East India Company and Nawab of Bengal and his French allies. Nawab Siraj Ud Daulah, the last Nawab of Bengal, fought the battle to survive as independent ruler from the British rule and was supported by French East India Company.
The forces of the East India Company under the commander ship of Robert Clive defeated the army of Nawab from Bengal. The battle was actually a programmed one as Mir Jafar, the army commander of Nawab along with the large number of soldiers from the Nawab’s army were convinced and bribed by East India Company.
This resulted into the defeat of Nawabs and the major ladder for the ascendancy of British rule in India. The East India Company flourished by winning the battle and strengthened its military by gaining treasure of Bengal and later captured most of the parts of South Asia.
