Product description

Review

The book is relatively concise when compared to books on the same topic by other authors. It captures the holistic view of not only struggle for independence but also the later Mughal period (post Aurangzeb), the decline of central authority, rise of regional satraps and the domination of tribes from Afghanistan. Those who are preparing for Civil Services should definitely go through this book twice or thrice, especially as in the new pattern the history syllabus will begin from the mid-18th century instead of mid-19th century, as was the case earlier. --Kavinder Negi on 06 Mar 2013

this book gives a brief description about the events happened chronologically and so easy to get the writings of the author... one should read it --Ankit Bala on 22 Feb 2015

It is the must book for all IAS aspirants. Written in very Lucid language, like a story very interesting to read. This book made history easy for student like me of engineering background. --Abhi Sinha on 07 Feb 2015
