Description

The bloody insurrection of 1857 that became known as the Indian Mutiny remains a dark stain on Britain’s Imperial past. The British complacency that fuelled the rebellion; the ease with which it is spread; the horrific massacres of innocents and the merciless retribution that followed; and the bravery of those who fought together made this a conflict that marked both countries. Now Saul David casts fresh light on this extraordinary episode, challenging many of the long-standing assumptions about both its causes and the inevitability of British victory.
