Reviews of The Indian Mutiny: 1857
"A remarkable work of synthesis: scholarly, well researched, well paced, readable, and comprehensive… The Indian Mutiny is one of history’s great stories, and in David it has found a chronicler whose knowledge and grasp of arcane military matters is matched by his narrative skills. A fine achievement by a huge new talent."
William Dalrymple, Sunday Times
"Saul David has written the 21st Century version with a brilliant display of literary history that escapes the word “definitive” only out of deference to its inexhaustible subject matter."
Roger Hutchinson, The Scotsman
"Enthralling… David tells the story of the mutiny’s violent course and final suppression with almost cinematic vividness and sweep."
John Adamson, Sunday Telegraph
