This six-volume History of the Indian Mutiny was first produced in 1890 by Colonel George Malleson (1825-1898), who combined Sir John Kaye's History of the Sepoy War in India with his own later work. Kaye (1814-1876) was a prolific writer of biography and history who started the Calcutta Review in 1844. His use of first-hand evidence, collected from personal and professional contacts, supports (perhaps predictably) his assertion that the rebellion is a story of British 'national character', and the narrative is illustrated with biographical and personal anecdotes. Malleson's contributions however are derived from his controversial 'Red Pamphlet' (1857) and other writings, in which he is unafraid to criticise or praise British troops and administration as the occasion demands. Volume 2 covers Delhi history and the spread of the revolt from Meerut to Allahabad and Cawnpore, concluding with the battle of Najafgahr and the siege of Delhi.

Book Description:

Malleson's edition and continuation of Kaye's seminal History of the Sepoy War in India was published as the History of the Indian Mutiny in 1890. Combining Kaye's source-based narrative with his own observations as a military man, Malleson produced a work which remains central to studies of the period.
