Description du livre Navy Records Society, 1st.ed., 1947. Xv + 332 pp., map. Blue/white buckram ; gilt. 23 x 16cm. Nr. FINE. The Indian Mutiny was a revolt by native troops against British forces in India in 1857, its immediate causes being the introduction of service overseas (forbidden to high-caste Hindus), and the greasing of cartridges to counteract jamming in hot weather with the fat of pigs and cows (offensive to both Mahomedans and Hindus). After isolated incidents, sepoy regiments at Meerut rebelled and marched to Delhi proclaiming the restoration of the Mogul Empire. At Cawnpore a British garrison held out for some weeks but was massacred after surrender. Lucknow was stubbornly defended until reinforcements arrived and after Delhi had been retaken. Early in 1858 a campaign by Sir Hugh Rose finally stamped out the revolt which had been confined to Bengal, Central India, and North West provinces along the Ganges. Government of India was transferred from the East India Company to the British crown that year. The Royal Navy’s role in the suppression of the mutiny was not inconsiderable. The three main parts of this book describe the fighting of the Naval Brigades put ashore from H.M. Ships SHANNON, PEARL and PELORUS. In addition there are eight appendices dealing with the principal actions, private correspondence, etc. N° de réf. du libraire C146B191
