Two wars - the 1857 Revolt in India and the American Civil War -seemingly fought for very different reasons, occurred at opposite endsof the globe in the middle of the nineteenth century. But they wereboth fought in a world still dominated by Great Britain and the battlecry in both conflicts was freedom.Rajmohan Gandhi brings the drama of both wars to one stagein A Tale of Two Revolts. He deftly reconstructs events from the pointof view of William Howard Russell - an Irishman who was also perhapsthe world's first war correspondent - and uncovers significantconnections between the histories of the United States, Britain andIndia. The result is a tale of two revolts, three countries and one century.Into this fascinating story Rajmohan Gandhi weaves the choicesof three towering figures of world history - Karl Marx, Leo Tolstoyand Abraham Lincoln - to show the continuities between the nineteenthcentury and the world we live in today.
