The Shadow of the Great Game: The Untold Story of India's Partition

Some brief overview of book

A radical reassessment in British colonial history by the former ADC to the last Viceroy of British India is important, but Sarila's claim that current Islamic terrorism is partially rooted in Partition has wider implications. Historians have underestimated the role of British strategic interests: fears about the USSR's control of Middle Eastern oil wells and access to the Indian Ocean. New material on figures like Gandhi, Jinnah, Mountbatten, Churchill, Attlee, Wavell, and Nehru are offered.
