The story of the action taken by Brigadier-General Dyer at Amritsar in the Punjab in 1919. Faced with insurrection in support of Mahatma Gandhi, the British Army declared martial law. Violent rioting in Amritsar brought the Brigadier to take astonishing action, including the shooting of over 300 unarmed people at a public meeting. Regarding the subsequent native obedience as a satisfactory result, he was surprised to find himself removed from active command and he made lengthy representations to Parliament protesting at his treatment. This book contains the report of the Hunter Committee apointed by the Government of India to investigate, Disturbances in the Punjab, published in 1920, and Brigadier-General Dyers own statement submitted to the Committee. Uncovered Editions are historic official papers now available in popular form.
