5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Historian and Novelist.
By Abul Hasan Jamadar on 12 September 2019
I am a great fan of William Dalrymple sir. I like his sharp thought of mind and excellent scholarly researched materials which he described in an attractive way. Admittedly his writings have genereated in me the interest for history which is indomitable now. I was eagerly waiting for History of Murshidabad and now Very elated to get it in this Book. The way he described the Indian corporate torture by a four window room of British East India Company and betrayal by our own natives in connection with EIC for their selfish motives beggard description. Thank you sir for your wonderful contributions.....
