LUCKNOW 1857 - A terrible siege. The rebellion began as a mutiny of sepoys of the East India Company's army on 10 May 1857, in the cantonment of the town of Meerut, and soon escalated into other mutinies and civilian rebellions largely in the upper Gangetic plain and central India, with the major hostilities confined to present-day Uttar Pradesh, western Bihar, northern Madhya Pradesh, and the Delhi.

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. David provides new and convincing evidence that the true causes of the mutiny were much more complex, and disturbing, than previously assumed

The Indian Rebellion of 1857 was a major, but ultimately unsuccessful, uprising in India in 1857–58 against the rule of the British East India Company, which functioned as a sovereign power on behalf of the British Crown. The rebellion began on 10 May 1857 in the form of a mutiny of sepoys of the Company's army in the garrison town of Meerut, 40 mi (64 km) northeast of Delhi (now Old Delhi).

The Defence of Lucknow is a memoir of the dramatic events of 1857, when the native sepoy troops of the Bengal army dramatically rose up against their colonial masters. The ensuing insurrection was to become the bloodiest in the history of the British Empire, with several thousand killed on both sides. With only 1,700 men, including loyal sepoys, the British fought off many ferocious attacks. The author describes the rebels’ desperate attempts to breach the walls, as well as their extensive use of tunnels. After ninety days, with the British reduced to just 600 soldiers, relief finally arrived. The response to the mutiny was fearsome. Reinforced by Gurkhas from Nepal and the Queen’s regiments fresh from the Crimea War, the British began a bloody campaign to re-establish their rule in India. Whole villages were hanged for real or imagined sympathy for the mutineers. Later, convicted mutineers were lashed to the muzzles of cannon and had a roundshot fired through their body. It was cruel punishment known by the Indians as ‘the devil’s wind’.
