Massacre at Cawnpore
Meticulously researched and historically accurate, this depiction of the tragic story from the Indian Mutiny resonates in the struggles against religious fanaticism of our own time. Intense and inspiring, it describes the heroism of a handful of British soldiers and civilians who confronted swarms of vengeful sepoys and all but hopeless odds through the eyes of the characters Sheridan and his wife Emmy.
