Book Description
On 27 June 1857, rebels publicly slaughtered over 300 men, women and children of the `master race` at the Satichaura Ghat in Knapur. On 15 July, a group of women and children who had survived were killed at the Bibighur. Two days later, General Havelock reclaimed Kanpur and Colonel James Neill decimated the rebel population. This sequence of violence has held sway over Indian and British imaginations for generations, and historians and commentators have recounted the massacres with horror.
