Excerpt from Kaye's and Malleson's History of the Indian Mutiny of 1857-8, Vol. 6 of 6
In conclusion, I would with great respect lay the last volume of this work before the public as the concluding words of an attempt to describe, faithfully and without prejudice, the most ma... rvellous episode of modern times. There had been nothing to equal it in the world's history before. I repeat here, what I have said in a previous volume, that no harder task was ever suddenly thrown upon a nation than that cast upon the British in 1857. In achieving it, they literally conquered the impos sible that is, they performed a task which, I believe, no other people in the World could have accomplished. They conquered, because, in the darkest hour, they never despaired because, believing in their own energies, they dared to be great.
