I loved it! Mr Featherstone is already well-known in his wragming world as a capable author and perhaps best on the nineteenth century. The angle of this particular book is interesting and makes it a very good complement to what you may already have on India, on any of the 5 wars covered, on the colonial British Army and its foes. The 5 wars are Sind, Gwalior, 1st Sikh, 2nd Sikh and the Mutiny.

Victorian Colonial Warfare: Africa, 1842-1902. Donald F. Featherstone. My only complaint is that the fonts are old-fashioned as well, and a bit too small. VERY long paragraphs and rare subheadings also make the text dense. Space was saved, I'm sure, but at the expense of my eyesight. Almost all illustrations are taken from publications of the time, including maps, battle diagrams, combat pictures etc.

Indian Mutiny, widespread but unsuccessful rebellion begun in 1857 against British rule in India. From the time of the mutineers’ seizure of Delhi, the British operations to suppress the mutiny were divided into three parts. It began when Indian troops (sepoys) in the service of Britain’s East India Company refused to use purportedly tainted weaponry. First came the desperate struggles at Delhi, Kanpur, and Lucknow during the summer; then the operations around Lucknow in the winter of 1857–58, directed by Sir Colin Campbell; and finally the mopping up campaigns of Sir Hugh Rose in early 1858. Peace was officially declared on July 8, 1859.
