Tales from British India

Terence R. Blackburn (Author)

The tales in this book arose from a fortuitous purchase of several volumes of The Asiatic Journal etc., published during the first half of the 19 century. Its remarkable pages are crammed with letters, reports, articles and accounts of life experienced in India during those tumultuous days when the British were determined to take over the country, while the native rulers understandably resisted. These selected tales are an extraordinary collection of eye-witness accounts concerning crafty missionaries, tiger hunts, huge bands of plunderers, rapists and murderers known as the Pindaries, the unspeakable ill treatment of captive females, horrendous human sacrifices practiced by the Khond tribes, the exotic and fatal diseases suffered by the British, and the terrible battles between the celebrated Hyder Ali, his son, Tippoo Sultan and the East Indian Company.

About the author

Terence R. Blackburn

Terence R. Blackburn was born in London in 1938. He served with the Royal Army Medical Corps in Germany, and later continued his work in the field of health care until his retirement.

He firmly believes that there are always two sides two sides to every story and that equal weight should be given to both.
