A somewhat gossipy history of India's fight for independence and the tragedy of Partition, with a focus on several major figures--Nehru, Gandhi, and the Mountbattens--with their strengths and foibles.

It covers Dikies Partisan involvement in Details on the Partition of India in more details than I have ever read and of the relationship of Nehru and Lady Mountbatten...it also absolves Jinnah of what has been repeated claimed as Non -secularism .Very readable and easy assimilation for those who have read other books on this Tragic Event....the Biggest Blunder of Dickie...even more so than"HMS.Kelly" and the Canadian Landing ...at Dieppe!!!

Superb book; hard to put down. I found it filled many of the gaps in my knowledge of the players in India's independence.
The author's rare acerbic comments are delightful; the foot notes are well done.
