    Sunil Khilnani
  • Absorbing and important...rational and detailed

    Philip Hensher, Spectator
  • An important story...Raghavan's splendid history is a reminder not just of India's historic contribution to the defeat of fascism, but also its geopolitical potential throughout the Indo-Pacific.

    Shashank Joshi, Financial Times
  • Raghavan's study fulfils his mission in presenting readers with intertwined narratives of military campaigns, international strategies, and the rise of the freedom struggle that was to determine the future of the subcontinent.

    Aamer Hussein, The Independent
  • Contains...enormous scope and a great depth of detail.

    Nigel Collett, The Diplomat
  • A highly readable account of one of the more complex - and ignored - phase of World War II, one that even briefly threatened the U.S.-British alliance.

    Joseph C. Goulden, The Washington Times
  • Raghavan excels in explaining exactly what went on behind the lines...his narrative of the military campaigns is ample reward. Exemplary and enthralling.

    John Keay, Literary Review
