MUTINY ON THE SUBCONTINENT

I am a regular reader of your magazine, and I must say that many of the articles that you have published are very interesting to me. But the one that I found most interesting recently is the cover feature in issue 48 (November 2017) – Victoria: Rise of an Empress.

You briefly mentioned the so-called Indian Mutiny 1857 in this, which can also be known as ‘The Sepoy Mutiny’. In the article, the author correctly mentions the brutality the soldiers of the East India Company used to crush the rebellion. But what she has not mentioned is that some of the Indian soldiers, who fought in the mutiny against the British soldiers, were sometimes executed in horrific and humiliating manners (for example by being hung from trees) if they were caught. Entire villages and towns were burnt down – completely wiped out.

About History Revealed

When we began thinking of how best to celebrate our 50th issue, we thought it would be great to look at the turning points in history, to pick which decisions had the greatest impact on the world. But as we started to come up with a list of key moments, it soon became clear that this was a herculean task; we were going to need some help. A few phone calls and emails later, we had assembled a panel of experts including some of the most respected and popular historians, writers and broadcasters in the land. We quickly realised it’s not possible to define the single biggest decision in history – how could anyone? – but the variety of responses we had illustrated the vast richness of history. So, from Julius Caesar crossing the Rubicon, to Decca Records choosing to pass on the Beatles, we present 50 decisions that, for better or worse, have shaped our world. Before I let you go, I’d like to thank all of our readers most sincerely for your support since we launched – here’s to the next 50 issues!
