Subhas Chandra Bose's journeys abroad are described in some detail. Especially the summit meetings with axis leaders in their bid to hammer out a common goal and objective. Mr Gordon begins one chapter with the question Axis collaborator? This is too harsh, Subhas Chandra Bose represented the Subcontinent, a people fighting for their independence against British tyranny. To call this freedom fighter an axis collaborator or even ask such a question would be calling for example, Charles de Gaulle a 'collaborator', if collaborator is used in the negative sense.Read more ›
This book is really two biographies in one. Sarat and Subhas Bose were brothers who shared a common desire to rid their nation British rule. While the former chose nonviolent struggle and joined Mahatma Gandhi in his campaign of passive resistance, the latter decided that armed struggle could be employed with the assistance of England's two main adversaries during World War 2, Germany and Japan, in driving out foreign occupation.
I would highly recommend this book to people interested in learning about the history of modern
India. It is an objective presentation of the lives of two brothers who made a significant contribution to India's freedom struggle, but have not until recently been given their proper recognition.
