About this product
- DescriptionThe new series of Spellmount Military Memoirs provides rare and sought-after texts for the collector of classic historical works, together with rigorously selected personal narratives never before in print - destined to become classics in their own right. Through the Indian Mutiny is one such text. Having passed the examination for the Medical Service of the Hourable East India Company, as an Assistant Surgeon in the celebrated regiment of North West Frontier warriors, the 4th Punjab Native infantry, James Fairweather soon found himself at the centre of the Indian Mutiny. Often used as little more than cann fodder, these brave men fought in all the major battles of the bloody campaign - including the Storming of Delhi, the Battle of Agra and Relief of Luckw. Of the 1,000 men in the regiment, 900 would be lost to enemy action and disease. His extraordinarily honest and dramatic memoirs have been edited and antated by author William Wright, former Chairman of the Victorian Military Society.
