Lots of good stuff.

Wickremesekera, C. (2004). Kandy At War: Indigenous Military Resistance to European Expansion in Sri Lanka 1594-1818. New Delhi: Manohar.

Great book full of detail. There doesn’t seem to be a UK distributor so I got this from the US. You can also order direct from India.

Wickremesekera, C. (2004, Aug). Military organisation in pre-modern Sri Lanka: the army of the Kandyan kings. South Asia: Journal of South Asian Studies, 27(2), 133-151. Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis Group.
