BeschreibungA Cavalry Officer during the Sepoy Revolt. EXPERIENCES WITH THE 3rd BENGAL LIGHT CAVALRY, THE GUIDES AND SIKH IRREGULAR CAVALRY FROM THE OUTBREAK OF THE INDIAN MUTINY TO DELHI AND LUCKNOW. A YOUNG BRITISH CAVALRYMAN CAUGHT UP IN THE CHAOS OF MUTINY AND ITS BLOODY AFTERMATH. The Indian Mutiny began for Mackenzie in a fury of violence and bloodshed. As Bengal Army native troops rose, killing their Officers and their families and burning their cantonments, this young cavalryman found himself literally fighting for his life often against those he had recently commanded. This terrible but often exciting narrative takes the reader from the outbreak of the mutiny through a time of rebellion and warfare as seen from the horse soldiers perspective. A must for anyone interested in the Raj, Victorian Warfare and well written first hand military accounts
