About Author

Sir John William Kaye

Sir John William Kaye was a British military historian, civil official, and Indian army officer. His major contributions to military history include a three-volume treatise on The History of the Sepoy War in India. George Bruce Malleson later reworked this work, which was published in six volumes in 1890 as Kaye and Malleson's History of the Indian Mutiny. He was born in London on June 3, 1814, as the second son of Charles Kaye, a solicitor, and Eliza, Hugh Atkins' daughter. He was baptized on June 30, 1814. He studied at Eton College (1823-1826) and the Royal Military College, Addiscombe (1831-1832). He served in the Bengal Artillery from 1832 to 1841, being commissioned as a Second-Lieutenant on 14 December 1832 and promoted to Lieutenant on August 19, 1840. During his tenure in the Army, he began to pursue literary interests both in India and in Britain. In 1839, he married Mary Catherine (1813–1893), the daughter of Thomas Puckle of Surrey. On April 1, 1841, he resigned his position in the army and began writing for publications, including the Bengal Hurkaru, which he edited. In 1844, he founded the Calcutta Review and wrote over 50 articles for it, as well as a book set in Afghanistan.
