[Illustrated with over one hundred maps, photos and portraits, of the battles, individuals and places involved in the Indian Mutiny]
‘The mutiny as seen by a Lancer’s wife
This account, which briefly covers life in India immediately preceding the Indian Mutiny, was originally titled A Lady’s Life Before and During the Indian Mutiny. The ‘red’ year of 1857 was an apocalyptic one for many of the British in India and Mrs. Ouvry’s account as she gives us the perspective of a wife of a senior regimental officer in a British Army cavalry regiment is, of course, harrowing. Henry Ouvry was an officer of the 3rd Light Dragoons before transferring to the 9th Lancers who saw much action and earned themselves a fearsome reputation during the Mutiny. Although Mrs. Ouvry was spared the experiences of the wives of officers of native regiments whose men rose up to slaughter them, this was still a time of anguish, terror and uncertainty for her, and this memoir brings her experiences vividly to life for anyone interested in the period.’-Print ed.
