It was not the British who won at Plassey 6 and Buxar; it was the Indians who lost. But even these victories provided the British with only a temporary peace. With the catastrophic defeat of the Marathas by the Afghan Ahmad Shah Abdali in I76I, the country was plunged into widespread anarchy once more with Muslim nobles and others carving out kingdoms for themselves.
