Tatya Tope's Operation Red Lotus is a quest to understand the real history of the Revolt of 1857. It is a quest that led the Tope family to discover the dramatic battle man oeuvres of their ancestor, the legendary Tatya Tope, as well as the true import of the war. The first detailed account of Tatya Tope, covering his entire campaign from the planning of the war to his death, Operation Red Lotus offers a surprising answer to the generations-old question of whether the man hanged on 18 April 1859 was really Tatya Tope. About the Author Parag Tope is the founder and part owner of Cistarus. A relentless passion for history, combined with a master's degree in engineering and an MBA in strategy, helped Parag apply his analytical skills to bring a refreshing perspective to the reconstruction of a fascinating event, and figure, in Indian history.
