Dealer Notes
" The Sepoy Mutiny, 1857" p. 140: " This work is arguably the most famous work in Mutiny literature. Upon publication it caused an immediate storm and brought a quick response from Charles Allen. The indictment of Dalhousie caused particular reaction in some quarters. Malleson refers to him as " a man of paltry little ness and petty jealousy. The third part of this book was lost in a shipwreck so never published. "
George Bruce Malleson (1825-1898), was an army officer and military historian. He wrote The Mutiny of the Bengal Army, published anonymously in 1857 and known as the red pamphlet .
