The establishment in British India produced an impressive number of scholars and scholarly amateurs who pursued historical and other studies and wrote books and articles of distinction. Mr. Palmer has produced a work in this tradition. His subject is the outbreak of the Mutiny (as the Raj considered it) among the native regiments (as the Raj called them) at Meerut on the evening of Sunday 10 May 1857. Was the outbreak planned in advance or did it arise through chance circumstances on that fateful evening? How badly was the situation handled? Mr Palmer’s examination moves some of the blame for handling of the incident from General Hewitt to Brigadier Archdale Wilson. He defends the failure to follow up the mutineers by a march to Delhi and gives an interesting analysis of the curious career and character of Colonel Carmichael-Smyth. He re-examines the evidence of premeditation for the outbreak and treats meticulously the significance of arms and equipment and loading drill. Contents Introduction 1. Chapâtis 2.
