I read a diary from a British officer during the rebellion in 1838/first war of Indian independence who went through that exact journey: he started out thinking it was a lark, went a long way like that, and then right at the end of the diary his best friend was burned and died slowly over days, before his eyes. He wrote that it broke his heart and he could never enjoy war again. The diary ends there. Then there's an afterword by the editor that says that he went back to England and spent the rest of his life building waterways, and never kept another diary.
