For the Second Opium War you can throw in French troops. Mongol cavalry put on the most professional performance of the Manchu forces, impressing European observers. According to a book I read some years back, the second war is when the word loot entered the English language, when British rank and file figured out what the Sepoys were looking forward to at the Summer Palace.
Thank you Guy, for the correction.
