Subhas Chandra Bose Is Among The Most Controversial Figures Of The Indian Freedom Struggle. The Sign Of The Tiger Unfolds Those Days Of His Political Career, Mostly Unknown To Indians, When Netaji Recruited Indian Prisoners Of War To Form The Indian Legion Under The Aegis Of The German Army And Describes How They Fought Valiantly Against The British In The Second World War. Written From A German Perspective, The Book Focuses More On Bose'S Political Vision Than On His Magnetic Personality.
