Product Description


The most compelling and comprehensive history of the Indian Mutiny ever written.

Product Description

'A fine achievement by a huge new talent' William Dalrymple, Sunday Times

In 1857 the native troops of the Bengal army rose against their colonial masters. The ensuing insurrection was to become the bloodiest in the history of the British Empire.Combining formidable storytelling with ground-breaking research, Saul David narrates a tale at once heart-rendingly tragic and extraordinarily compelling. David provides new and convincing evidence that the true causes of the mutiny were much more complex, and disturbing, than previously assumed.
