Prome BurmaCelebrity Burma
Burma's poorly armed military was defeated despite the numerical advantages. Ava' s ensuing advance northwards by the UK Armed Forces was a threat, leading to negotiations for a peaceful settlement in the Kingdom of Burma. After Danubyu's loss and the loss of General Maha Bandula, King Bagyidaw ordered General Maha Ne Myo to take Prome with an Army.
Burma's military was split into three division and located around Prome in Simbaik, in the Napadi Mountains and on the west bank of the Irrawaddy rivier. Burma's military has been harassing the UK in remote areas for Prome through small roundups, but it has not committed itself to an assault on Prome himself.
Headed by General Archibald Campbell, the UK Armed Forces consist of several Royal Foot and Madras Natural Foot Corps infantry and archtillery. General Campbell began an assault on the lefthand detachment under the command of Maha Ne Myo on December 1, 1825, while deflecting the middle detachment with a lock.
Lefthand divisions were assaulted with a bayoneted assault under the command of Lieutenant General Willoughby Cotton, and a subsequent assault by General Campbell triggered a full assault on the leftist divisions of the Myanmar military. On the following morning, the UK Armed Forces assaulted the centre department on the Napadi Mountains and expelled Burma's forces from the mounds for the courage of the local foot soldiers.
The right-wing section on the west bank of the Irrawaddy riverbank was attacked, leading to a general withdrawal of the Myanmar military. However, as the military was exhausted, the Myanmar ambassador, the master of Kawlin, answered that his government: Burma's military, which was in charge of the Prome assault, was mainly made up of Shans and the overall force was about 10,000 men.
4 ] According to one of the accounts, the army's non-Shan share was only 1300. 5 ] (British post-war coverage claims a combination of Burma's 50,000 to 60,000 cents. 6 ] Later English philosophers such as GE Harvey, however, examined that the Konbaung dynasty could not have mustered more than 60,000 men for the whole outbreak.
Burma's commando had also deployed a 3,000-strong force under Minhla Minkhaung's leadership on the west shore of the Irrawaddy just off Prome as a fortification. General Campbell's command: Defense at Prome: In November 1825, the Myanmar military under Maha Ne Myo was made up mainly of several Shan races headed by their own Shan-Sawbwas.
But in early December, the British' overwhelming fire power had won and vanquished the Burmese' last desperate attempt. Campbell quickly followed an assault on the middle section of the Burma military, headed by Kee-Woonghee, on the Napadi Mountains on December 2, after the Maha Ne Myo outbreak.
A defense offensive at the foot of the hill was headed by six troops of the 1987th regime, and the Burma military was quickly overpowered, retiring to defense on the hill. Burma's military held a powerful presence on the Napadi Highlands, which could only be reached by a small street and were watched over by ordnance.
of the Bengali 1. troops attacked the hills: the 13. and 38. regiments of the 1. Bengali 1. troops hired the Myanmar military from the front, while the 87. troops attacked the area. Burma's military was expelled from the mounds and the two division were moved along the east bank of the Irrawaddy riverbank.
The 5th December saw an assault on the Myanmar Branch under the leadership of Minhla Minkhaung to move forces to the west bank of the Irrawaddy Riviera. Raketenbrigade and mortars opened fire on Burma's location and Burma's forces withdrew from the bombing. An assault by men under the leadership of General Cotton, Brigadier Richard Armstrong and Colonel Godwin attacked the Myanmar military immediately after the gun fire and scattered the rest of Burma's forces.
As much of Burma's armed forces were scattered in Prome, the UK troops headed by Campbell moved unhindered to Ava until they came across a fenced defense at Bagan. As a result of a reduced armed force, the Kingdom of Burma was more likely to bargain for freedom and respect the conditions and requirements of the Brits.
