Editorial Reviews

Review

Rosie Llewellyn-Jones has spent years in the archives digging up forgotten corners of the history of relations between the British and the Indians, and she is the leading and much revered authority on Nawabi Lucknow. The Great Uprising, like all her works, is full of new and original material, engagingly presented and amusingly written. Her fascinating work deserves to be much better known and more widely read than it currently is. --William Dalrymple

An unconventional look at the Red Year of 1857 by someone who knows her stuff and who is not afraid to take her own line on a bloody episode of British and Indian history that still raises hackles. --Charles Allen, author of Plain Tales from the Raj

It is a wonderful book and tells many facts that one interested in the mutiny subject will find interesting. The last paragraph of the book is wonderfully written.
