A History of the Indian Mutiny: Those who may open this book will not, I think, complain that it is wanting in detail or in that element of personal adventure which could not properly be excluded from a History of the Indian Mutiny. But it does not profess to give a minute account of what took place at every station and in every district in India during the struggle. A narrative minute enough, In most of its chapters, to satisfy the most curious reader has already been given to the world by Sir John Kaye and Colonel Malleson and there is nothing to justify any one in undertaking to write another book on the subject on the same scale as that which they adopted. The history of the Mutiny, like every other history, must indeed be told in detail, if it is to hold the interest of readers: but, while the narrator of recent events is expected to give a full account of all that are interesting in themselves, the writer who appears later in the field ought to reserve his detailed narrative for events of historical importance. There is, I am sure, room for a book which, while giving a detailed narrative of the Chief campaigns, of the stirring events that took place at the various centres Of revolt, and Of every episode the story of which can permanently interest the general reader, and a more summary account of incidents of minor importance.
