 Battle of Assaye: The Times Report - Sidebar - MSN Encarta
This report on the Battle of Assaye appeared in The Times on March 30, 1804.
The battle, fought in September 1803 during the Maratha Wars in India, saw a victory for a British army led by Arthur Wellesley—later the 1st Duke of Wellington—over an army representing the Maratha Confederacy, the Hindu state that dominated much of India in the 18th century.
Despite this defeat, the Maratha states, which often were in conflict among themselves, were only to lose their independence to Britain after a total of three conflicts had been fought (in 1775-1782, 1803-1805, and 1817-1818).

This particular page is a history of the battles of the 19th, largely extracted from the regimental archives, which are concerned only with the regiment's battle honours.
The next occasion on which the 19th took the Field was the glorious campaign of Assaye, which victory the Regiment still celebrates on the 23rd of September.
Thus it was that the 19th Dragoons gained the Royal permission to wear the badge of the Elephant with the word "Assaye" on colours and appointments, in commemoration of the gallantry displayed by the Regiment in the battle and during the Campaign.

 Assaye 1803: Wellington's Bloodiest Battle (Campaign) by Osprey Publishing
Assaye 1803 is not really structured as a typical Osprey campaign series in that it omits the opposing plans section and spends a great deal of time describing the political maneuvering and military movements that led to the battle.
Wellington said that of all his battles Assaye, fought during the Second Mahratta War (1803-05) in central India, was 'the bloodiest for the numbers that I ever saw'.
The battle, which lasted four hours, witnessed costly infantry and cavalry assaults, but was won by the steadiness of Wellesley's troops and his inspiring leadership.

 The Battle of Assaye 23 September
The experience gained at Assaye and in India was to ensure that after moving to the Iberian Peninsula he was to push his Army forward, demanding an expectation of victory that was to be sustained for nearly ten years and lead to a British success over Napoleonic (previously Revolutionary) France that could seem almost inevitable.
Wellesley, however, found a nearby ford and crossed the river near the village of Assaye and moved against the enemy's left flank.
The village of Assaye itself was a tough defensive nut to crack and, adding to Wellesley's difficulties, another Mahratta cavalry attack had to be seen off by the British cavalry.
