DescriptionOn a dark evening in November 1862, a cheap coffin is buried in eerie silence. There are no lamentations or panegyrics, for the British Commissioner in charge has insisted, 'No vesting will remain to distinguish where the last of the Great Mughals rests.' This Mughal is Bahadur Shah Zafar II, one of the most tolerant and likeable of his remarkable dynasty who found himself leader of a violent and doomed uprising. The Siege of Delhi was the Raj's Stalingrad, the end of both Mughal power and a remarkable culture.

Reviews for The Last Mughal
This is a must-read for anyone interested in India or Indian history during the time of British rule. I have not read a book on the mutiny that could surpass this work. William Dalrymple recounts the events leading up to during, as well as the aftermath of the 1857 mutiny in such incredible, vivid detail, you could almost be there. I was so captivated that I had to visit Red Fort in Delhi. by Michael Hoskison
