The saga of 1857 revolt, the First War of Independence is written with painstaking care, and much toil and tears. It is a historian s account of chain of events and their cascading effects, baring the truth lying buried deep under the official positions and unofficial assertions. Recounting the events, the author even risked stirring up of controversy. John William Kaye had mountain of important papers in his possession related to Sepoy War, and to add, promised of further assistance from the surviving actors in the hot scene. The story of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 is, perhaps, the most signal illustration of our great national character ever yet recorded in the annals of our country. It was a vehement and inordinate self-assertion of the Englishman that produced the conflagration, it was the same vehement self-assertion of Indian people showed in the First War of Independence, the Indians cherish even to the date. It is an engrossing and heart-throbbing narration-a must read for the present day generation of Indians.
