Reminiscences Of The Great Mutiny 1857-59 [Illustrated Edition]: Including The Relief, Siege, And Capture Of Lucknow, And The Campaigns In Rohilcund And Oude

Illustrated with over one hundred maps, photos and portraits, ofthe battles, individuals and places involved in the IndianMutiny.A fascinating view of the Indian Mutiny from a non-commissionedofficer.“These Reminiscences are submitted to the public in the trustthat they will be welcomed alike by soldier and civilian. They arerecorded by one who was himself an actor in the scenes which hedescribes, and who viewed them from a novel and most unusualposition for a military historian—the ranks.They have been carefully perused by an officer who was presentat many of the operations mentioned; and considerable pains havebeen taken to verify, wherever possible, those incidents of whichhe was not personally cognisant.The interest of Mr. Forbes-Mitchell’s straightforward andsoldierlike story is enhanced by the coincidence that he takes upthe pen where Lady Inglis laid it down; and it is hoped that thisvolume may prove an acceptable continuation of her touchingnarrative of the Defence of Lucknow, and that, as a record of theGreat Mutiny, it may furnish another thrilling chapter in thatunparalleled story of suffering and of heroism,—of man’s braveryand of woman’s devotion.”—Introduction
