A well-balanced account of the build up to the Mutiny or 1st War of Independence and the re-taking of Delhi, showing atrocity and heroism on both sides. Good balance too of invention and historical accuracy (as far as I know). Well-written: brutal at times but gory for gore's sake. I had not heard of this book; although it is over thirty years since publication it did not feel dated. I shall at some point buy James Leassor's non-fiction work on the same subject, 'The Red Fort'.

Officers of the HEIC were not allowed to marry until they were 32 years old or so, and it is highly unlikely that a 19 year old would have taken up his posting as a married man! The author's command of the English language is rather sad. Not recommended to those who enjoy well-written historical novels.
