      The Indian Mutiny Medal with Central India clasp was awarded for service in Central India January - June , to all those who served under Major-General Sir Hugh Rose in actions against Jhansi, Kalpi, and Gwalior. Also awarded to those who served with Major-General Roberts in the Rajputana Field Force and Major-General Whitlock of the Madras. The mutiny could not, as such, be called a general mutiny of the Indian Army. HISTORICAL MISINTERPRETATION With the sepoys not having the overthrow of the East India Company's rule as their objective, leaders being positively selfish and treacherous playing a double game, it is a cruel misinterpreta- tion of history to call it a war of Indian.

As in most other books on the Mutiny, most of the quotations in the book are those of the British, and this tends to portray the British in a sympathetic light. While atrocities were done to them, the tone of the quotes tends to show the Indians in an unflattering light, and this is one-sided.

This book, THE INDIAN MUTINY, draws on the latest sources as well as numerous first-hand accounts, explains why the sepoy armies rose up against the world's leading imperial power, details the major places of fighting, including the massacres at Cawnpore and the epic sieges of Delhi and Lucknow, and carefully examines many other aspects Reviews: The book does follow the British point of view far more than the Indian one, perhaps because sources for the British point of view are much easier to find.

The Indian Mutiny is a real page-turner, an epic story with surprising modern parallels. Fomer army officer-turned-TV scriptwriter, Julian Spilsbury is the ideal author to take us back to the desperate summer of when thousands of Indian soldiers mutinied/5(46).

Indian Mutiny is one such event that attracts people who are connected and even those who are not, just for the curiosity of what happened and how. The bloodiest battles were fought during its course and the uprising took away unaccounted lives of both British and Indians.

In the Indian Mutiny book, the mutineers are only six figures, which makes them more brittle, a clever way to achieve historic results on the game table. The Badmash rabble are eight figures, though.
