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.
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'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
And moreover this is an Indian Edition with an elaborate re-written Preface by the authors. The authors have also declared that all the royalty from this edition will go for charity work in India. That is something very impressive and appreciable job done by the authors. Kudos.
