From Captain George Francklin Atkinson, the celebrated author of Curry and Rice on Forty Planes, comes the iconic Campaign in India 1857-58. Plates from this fine work are frequently served piecemeal on the menu of British literature relating to India. This edition blends text and illustrations into a dish in itself and offers it up in the manner first tasted in 1859. An introductory essay pencils in details of a life only previously outlined and explores his wider role in India as an officer of the Bengal Engineers. His popular work flavours the British response to the uprising yet the part he played in these tumultuous events is barely recognised. This Royal Armouries facsimile reprint puts Captain G F Atkinson back in the picture. Sketched in a fury of fever and excitement he later recorded the circumstances within which the book was written:

'Rushing to his tent and disrobing from all superfluous attire, he pens a vivid narrative of the action leaving hiatus etc. for the subsequent insertion of names of the glorious fallen and the glorious living. The narrative is read throughout Europe with a crushing and thrilling interest'. G F Atkinson 1859
