Heroes against overwhelming odds.,

This review is from: The Red Fort (Kindle Edition)
This is the 2nd time I've read this book, because it's too much to take in at one go. The individual heroism of some of the besieging force was just breathtaking, and the VCs awarded were richly deserved. Many people will want to learn more about the mutiny, specifically what happened at Cawnpore and Lucknow, both rivetting tales of heroism and hardship which are largely forgotten in this age of political correctness. A giant of a book.
