"At the point of the bayonet" Is the story of the Mahratha (Mahratta) Wars in India in the early 1800s. And, as is the case of most Of Henty's books, focuses on the adventures of a teenage boy during those events. In this book, Harry Linsday, a British Major's son, was orphaned during a raid by Mahratha warriors. Raised by his faithful native nurse who
teaches him the Mahratha language, Harry becomes a valuable Interpreter for the British army as well as a respected individual in the court of Nana Furnuwees.
He goes on to have many adventures...
I found this book to be very exciting and educational and is another great work of historical fiction by Mister Henty.I recommend it to any teenager looking for a good adventure story to read.
Here are the pros and cons for this E-book:
Affordable (especially for an E-book!)
A few annoying typos, such as Nizam being "Xizam" or Rupee being "Nupee" and other
such flaws made in the process of being scanned and copied.
If you read this book, I also recommend "The Tiger of Mysore" both stories happening at nearly the same time and place.
Thank you for reading my review! I hope you found it helpful and will read this wonderful book.
