Dealer Notes
A scarce record of a private soldier's privations in India in the mid 19th-century, with a personal account of the seige of Multan which he saw to the end when: "Mountains of dead lay in every part of the town, and heaps of human ashes in every square, where the bodies had been burnt as they were killed. Some were only half-consumed. Many had been gnawed and pulled to pieces by dogs; and arms, legs, heads and other parts lay in every place. The town swarmed with millions of flies."
