Overview

Sepoys, Siege & Storm - FEROZEPORE TO DELHI RIDGE AND THE BLOODY FIGHTING FOR THE CAPTURE OF THE CITY ITSELF
The 61st Foot were stationed at Ferozepore when the sepoys of the East India Company's Army rose in mutiny in 1857. This book chronicles a young officer's experience of that dramatic day's violence and the dreadful vengeance that followed when men were blown from the mouths of cannon before his eyes. Next came the march to Delhi with its skirmishes and running battles. Griffith's story takes us then to the siege and the apalling conditions on Delhi Ridge before we finally join him in the bloody storm and chaotic street fighting which was the fall of Delhi. This is a directly recounted, vivid first hand account of the Mutiny from within a British regiment. Not to be missed.
