'twas one of those books which leave a lasting impression upon your psyche. The authors have woven the work with such intricate authorship that it might as well pass for a work of fiction. I had to remind myself time and again that I was reading a book on history. The almost tedious attention to detail did not seem egregious, even for an instant. Historians have to learn a lot from the geniuses who have written down this magnum opus! Hats off :)

An awesome book, based mainly on Mountbatten's version of events that led to India's independence and partition.

The narrative is excellent, and it is really difficult to put the book down once you get hooked. The book moves along two lines mostly, one following Gandhi's actions and the other following Mountbatten's(which is in detail, since the authors had personally interviewed Mountbatten extensively for the work).

The authors have their own interpretations in some cases, which makes it all the more interesting.
In short, an excellent read.

Commendable work by the authors. the book provides many inside facts about well known history of our country INDIA. this book helps to come out of commotion about historical events happened during the Independence period.

some times we feel it as a suspense thriller we go through certain historical events. it enhances respect towards the leaders who were at the helm during Independence.

Younger generation must read this book to enlighten themselves.

I was fifteen years old when India became independent so the book brought back poignant memories of those days and also filled in the gaps in my knowledge. Thank you.

Thank you very much.

I'm a Japanese learning India.
I thought I learned a lot by the movie "Gandhi" about the independence of India.
This book gives me a lot more detailed and restless reality of the independence.
Disasters of the partition, Maharaja and Nizam, assassination of Gandhi, and a lot more.

I've leaned a lot
