There is a useful chapter on Burma 1885-87 in Volume 11 of A Dangerous Game - British Colonial Warfare on the Indian Sub-Continent 1854-1892, by PARRITT and WAIBEL. Some 36 pages in all, showing compostion of forces initially deployed for capture of Mandalay and the Dacoit War; including the additional forces disembarking at Rangoon in Sept/Oct 1886. Includes some biographical details for key participants. The book is well illustrated with some useful maps.
