Indian Summer: The Secret History Of The End Of An Empire Book Description

About the book:

At the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the British Empire withdrew from India, inviting in all the exhilaration and turmoil of a newly free society. In this vivid, atmospheric popular history, Alex von Tunzelmann chronicles these times through the most prominent figures: Dickie Mountbatten, Britain’s dashing, inept last viceroy; Dickie's savvy, glamorous wife, Edwina, who found the love of her life in Jawaharlal Nehru, India's new prime minister; Muslim leader Muhammad Ali Jinnah, and Mohandas Gandhi. Tunzelman's thrilling chronicle "removes the veil from the colorful personalities and events behind Inida's independence and partition with Pakistan"

The book is described as the secret history of the end of an empire. This is the first book by Alex Von Tunzelmann, a thirty year old Oxford historian. The story revolves around London and Delhi with the magnificent Buckingham Palace and Birla House as the major setting for this story. It revolves around the intimate love story of Jawarharlal Nehru and Edwina Mountbatten and their eventual separation. To know more about the most talked about love story in the history of Indian Independence, I highly recommend this book. The political inclination which laces the story is certainly worth much more than a one time read. . Do read this book by the oxford historian to get the real picture.
