The famous Battle of Wandiwash ‘which gave India’ to the British





In January 1760, the British, led by Eyre Coote, defeated the French forces under Thomas-Arthur, Comte de Lally, at Vandavasi in the present-day Tiruvannamalai district and established their supremacy in India. The battle also helped to vanquish the native powers.
