‘Here is a volume which must at once take its place beside those of Lady Sale and Lieut. Eyre, to which it forms a natural and necessary sequel... It narrates in the words and with the appliances of en eye-witness, the details, both personal and professional, of that glorious but terrible "measure of revenge," which it was the lot of General Pollock and his gallant band to inflict on the assassins of Cabool. The tale is infinitely better for being a "plain unvarnished" one... A considerable amount of amusement, as well as of utility, is added to this volume by the writer having made it the medium for his recollection of seven years' service in India, previously to the stirring events which give the chief attraction to the work. These recollections touch upon all the usual features of Anglo-Indian life, and are written in the same natural and easy vein which mark the more important portion of the narrative’ –
