Details

This book is a seminal work of historical research by Dr. Kalyan De and is based on authentic documents from the British archives, declassified in 1971. These documents are in the form of carefully selected letters, reports and minutes exchanged between the main protagonists of the British Raj in India – the Viceroy Field Marshal Viscount Wavell, the Commander-in-Chief of the British Indian Army General Sir Claude Auchinleck and other functionaries, such as the Governors of various states and the Intelligence Department on the one hand and Secretary of State for India, Lord Pethick Lawrence and other functionaries of the British administration in London on the other, leading to their ultimate decision to leave India as early as possible.

Netaji

Did you ever find yourself in a debate where you remember something but just can't figure out the source? Happens with me all the time , Especially when debating about Political History . Now i dont have to worry if i find myself debating about Subash Chandra Bose Ji. This book will be helpful. This book is a collection of archives and interviews of various individuals such as the M.K. Gandhi , the British officials etc. This book talks about the impact the INA had on the end of colonisation in our country and how less of an impact the " Quit India Movement " had. This book does not show anyone (well , except for the Britishers ) in a negetive manner , nor does it compare individuals such as M.K. Gandhi to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. For that there have been several books written , this is not one of them . The book , in places , should have given required context for people to more easily understand what is going on. For example maybe an Index could have been provided to explain in brief what was the August Revolution and many such terms. But if you have paid attention in Class 10 History lessons , you should not have any problems at all. I highly reccomended this book to every one irrespective of your political ideology.

Netaji: India's Independence And British Archives

This book is a good attempt and as a Netaji Bhakt myself, I was expecting more concrete proof that the British was forced to leave India. The documents presented in the book, hardly proves that they have left because of Netaji but unfortunately the don't.
