Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Indian Mutiny (Paperback)
There is a lot of detail in the book regarding the military campaign by the British during the mutiny which is what I think makes this book. A lot of precise information regarding sepoy divisions and why they rallied against the British adds to it as generally it is accepted that the cause was greased cartridges. This book goes on to show that there were a number of events that led up to the mutiny. The sections on Delhi and Lucknow in particular are well detailed and go to show that the sepoy revolt lacked real leadership.
