The Life of General Dyer

Description General Reginald Edward Harry Dyer is popularly known in India as a notorious killer of innocent Indians at a gathering in Jallianwala Bagh at Amritsar in April 1919. He was punished by the British government for ordering firing at the innocent people, irrespective of his distinguished military career and contribution to the British Empire. The author, after tracing the whole biographical profile of General Dyer and recording his distinguished military service, concludes that the great general was "more sinned against than sinning", to use a Shakespearean phrase. He declares that the British political rulers sacrificed the most loyal and efficient general at the altar of political expediency to please the Indian political leaders and people. Thus, a great injustice was done to a loyal British soldier, he writes.[edit]
