About The Book:
India’s Struggle for Independence is a detailed take on the Indian independence struggle. The book holds facts that are primarily from researched and oral sources. It is the first major book on the struggle and is written in a very concise manner.
The Indian independence movement was a massive one that spanned the entire length of the country. Major and minor revolts sprang across the subcontinent and countless revolutionaries fought together to drive the British out either through brute force or through non violent means. India’s Struggle for Independence is a book that speaks volumes of Bipan Chandra’s perseverance, because it covers the entire sequence of events comprehensively.
Based on legitimate oral and written sources, the book takes readers on an enthralling journey down a country’s path to complete freedom. The timeless tale of the Revolt of 1857 that was stirred up by Mangal Pandey and Rani Lakshmi Bai, Subash Chandra Bose’s aggressive tactics and charisma, Gandhi’s noncooperation and civil disobedience movements, and the final moments of the British Raj all come alive through the course of this book in vivid detail.
Ideal for history buffs, India’s Struggle for Independence is one of the most detailed and accurate accounts in the literary scene.
