THE INDIAN MUTINY: CONTEMPORANEOUS ACCOUNTS OF THE 1857 REVOLT OF THE NATIVE ARMY AGAINST THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE EAST INDIA COMPANY.
Published by the 'British Ancestors in India Society' in 55 pages over 3 issues, this document reads as a sometimes horrifying but always shocking account of the righteous attempt by the native population to end British rule in India. Much of the content is given in first-person by survivors, the bulk, however, being culled from accounts of actions of the troops and civilians themselves in their increasingly desperate efforts to survive against overwhelming odds, an enemy who thought nothing of dismembering babies before their mothers.
