India's Struggle for Independence is the first and the most reliable study of the country's epic fight for freedom. This classic word begins with the abortive revolt against the British in 1857 and culminates in India's Independence in 1947. Based on years of research as well as personal interviews with hundreds of freedom fighters, it presents a lucid and enduring view of the history of the period.
