The book can only be requested by members.


On joining the East Indian Company as an Assistant Surgeon to the celebrated regiment of the North-West Frontier warriors, James Fair-weather soon found himself at the Centre of what is sometimes called the First War of Indian Independence but which the British knew as the Mutiny of 1857. His regiment fought in all the major battles of the bloody campaign, including the Storming of Delhi, the Battle of Agra and the breathlessly-awaited Relief of Lucknow of the 1000 men in the regiment, 900 would be lost to battle and disease. Fair weather’s extraordinarily honest and dramatic memoirs of this time have been edited and annotated by British author, William Wright giving us an unparalleled glimpse into one of the pivotal events of Indian History.
