Frederick Whirlpool VC Reviewed by Military Books Australia

Frederick Whirlpool VC was recently reviewed by the premier Australian military book website Military Books Australia.

Leek does a good job of unravelling the complexities of the Indian mutiny in the period 1857-58, which some latter-day Indian historians have described as ‘India’s first war of independence’. He uses various sources to throw light on the actions that saw the badly wounded Whirlpool singled out by his commanding officer for the highest military honour.
