Description of the book "The Indian Mutiny: 1857"In "The Indian Mutiny: 1857" Saul David explores one of Britain's most harrowing colonial battles. In 1857 the native troops of the Bengal army rose against their colonial masters. The ensuing insurrection was to become the bloodiest in the history of the British Empire. Combining formidable storytelling with ground-breaking research, Saul David narrates a tale at once heart-rendingly tragic and extraordinarily compelling. David provides new and convincing evidence that the true causes of the mutiny were much more complex, and disturbing, than previously assumed. "A fine achievement by a huge new talent". (William Dalrymple, "Sunday Times"). Saul David is Professor of War Studies at the University of Buckingham and the author of several critically acclaimed history books, including "The Indian Mutiny: 1857" (shortlisted for the Westminster Medal for Military Literature), "Zulu: The Heroism and Tragedy of the Zulu War of 1879" (a Waterstone's Military History Book of the Year) and, most recently, "Victoria's Wars: The Rise of Empire".
