It threw up remarkable pe r s o n a l i t i es: Nicholson, who recaptured Delhi; Henry Lawrence, the defender of Lucknow; 'Holy' Havelock, the bible-thumping general who fought his way through to the relief of Lucknow only to find himself trapped there; and the dour uncompro mi si ng C ol in C am pb e ll who was sent to India after forty-years service to bring it back to sanity.
