The "mutiny" of 1857 is probably the best-known event within the history of modern India. It marked the transition from trade to formal imperial rule over India by Britain. This Companion sets out all that is known about every event, incident, battle, character, leader, anecdote, and rumor that is pertinent to 1857. The Companion's 1,500 main entries include 200 anecdotes (which provide a human dimension to this catalog of warfare, violence, and resistance), together with detailed biographical entries on the chief protagonists, both Indian and English.
