The Indian Mutiny of 1857 was the bloodiest insurrection in the history of the British Empire. It began with a large-scale uprising by native troops against their colonial masters, and soon developed into general rebellion as thousands of discontented civilians joined in. It is an extraordinary tale of brutal murder and heroic resistance from which innocents on both sides could not escape. Using startling new evidence, Saul David tells the enthralling story of the Mutiny. He challenges the accepted wisdom that a British victory was inevitable, showing just how close the mutineers came to dealing a fatal blow to the British raj.
