DETAILED DESCRIPTION: Fourteen months after the Peace of Paris concluded the Crimean War, the British Army was faced with a crisis which would require an even greater commitment of force. Putting down the Indian Mutiny would require two years, over half the British Army, and thousands of East India Company and loyal locals. The EIC?s forces? better and more experienced command structure and superior rifle-fire prevailed against the massed ranks of sepoys and their allies. The three major operations that were undertaken by the British are detailed, as is the dress, equipment and uniforms of the troops.
