9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By R. Neale on 5 April 2009
Format: Paperback
The main reason for choosing the book 'The Indian Mutiny 1857-58 was because my Great Grandfather was present at the latter end of the 'mutiny' his regiment was the 8th Hussars and they were prominent in one or two major skirmishes. The book itself gave some account of those skirmishes which was valuable to myself. But apart from that I found the book explained the Mutiny in a way that was easy to follow from beginning to end, not going into to deep a detail of events which can sometimes make the reader loose track of events. I enjoyed the book and I recomend it.

This short book represents a very easily digestible summary of the Indian Mutiny taking the reader through the obvious causes, the notable actions of the conflict (Cawnpore, Delhi, Luknow etc), and the various outcomes. It interposes case studies of notable involved figures and these inclusions always seem relevant and add value to the overall narrative.

This is by no means an in-depth history but rather a "primer" to give the reader a sense of the overall political situation and the major military blows as well as the outcome in social, economic, and political terms. The book is very focused on the British/East India Company side of events with the mutineer actions (or responses to Imperial actions) being less well explored and there are other texts which do a better job in this respect. However if you're looking for a basic working knowledge of the events in the India of 1857 to 1858 this is a good place to start.

This book is very descriptive in it's account of the mutiny. It is interesting to know what happened and to know how the conflict could have been avoided. I thought it was a very good read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Essential Histories from Osprey is an excellent series. It covers in about 100 pages core themes of major incidents and the Indian Mutiny is up there. Shaking British Rule in India to its foundations, ending the role of the East India Company and being billed as the first war of liberation. This is an excellent overview of people, events and the reasons behind the Mutiny. Interestingly more Indians fought with the British than rebelled...
