An extraordinary story of romance, history, and divided loyalties -- set against the backdrop of one of the most dramatic events of the twentieth century. The stroke of midnight on August 15, , liberated million people from the British Empire. With the loss of India, its greatest colony, Britain ceased to be a superpower, and its king ceased to sign himself Rex Imperator.
I recommend the book. A very good insight into what was going during the days which led to Indian becoming an independent nation. Realised that we got independence for one simple reason that it was getting too much for the British to handle such a country and not because we fought hard for it.
As the congress of the time was happy with "somewhat autonomy" then the complete independence. If the Nehru's sight was not only on the chair then we could have been a far bigger and better nation, truly great one.
A great book is one that keeps you captive even after you finish it and place in shelve. I am delighted that I have just finished another book that I will love to pass on to my grand children before my death. Another book on Indian partition was not needed as I thought while ordering it but once I started my journey with this book a month ago I immediately recemented my love with the subject.
Alex Von Tunzelmann in her this book have opened all those secret chambers of history which were never opened before.
The saga and gambit of partition that changed lives of millions in Punjab, Bengal, Sindh and Assam was re painted in all new colors with loads of new information. The perfect analysis of Neheru- Edwina secret relation with many new nuggets, the barter of Gurdaspur and Firozpur of Punjab in exchange of Chittagong of Bengal , Patel Neheru clash over Hydrabad and Kashmir, the all secret deals and leakage of papers in Shimla, Md Ali Jinha's pathetic end in isolation, no islamic fanatism beneficial to encash found in Kashmir by Muslim Leauge leaders and Neheru's statesmanship with poor future outlook all were given new lights by this historian from Oxford.
Thank you Alex. You have made my personal library richer and have added a new rainbow in my passion of knowing Indian partition as a subject.
Still reading, but its very riveting. Neither supersedes the other, but this author has obviously had access to even more material than the authors of 'Midnight'.
I love the little details - such as Gandhi learning the principle of non-violence from his wife! Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

It's one of the most engaging and enthralling book on Indian history and independence that I have read in a long time! I'm not of information which was headed to unknown to me was revealed through the pages.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to know the inside and headed to unknown truth about the Indian history. Thank you very much for writing such an insightful creation! Well researched and written keeping minute events and developments. But the cover and title of book is suggestive of some secret and non-political influences relating to India's independence which is not so Otherwise a nice book. A harrowing experience reading this book for people of the bridge generation like me who were born to British subjects and are parents to Indians who regularly talk about India's prospects as a superpower like no other All in all - a 'rare' effort!
Thank you! One person found this helpful. Its one of the best written book on Indian Independence and some major characters at that time. Its good to see that author has been neutral in his approach about defining the perspective of all the characters. Especially of Nehru, Edwina and Mountbatten.. See all 81 reviews.
