Abstract

Dato’ Bahaman led the Pahang resistance forces against British encroachment in a series of battles known as the Pahang Uprising. In these battles, Dato’ Bahaman employed various strategies against the opposing British forces. This article will analyse the battle strategies used by Dato’ Bahaman against the British by adopting literature review and content analysis as the methodology. Through this study, it was found that several strategies such as disguise, retreat, attack, fort building and many more were used by Dato’ Bahaman and his forces. Dato’ Bahaman executed planned battle strategies and created a great esprit de corps amongst his men. This shows that the Malays in the 19thcentury employed well thought out battle strategies combined with great fighting spirit and courage in confronting their enemies.
