But I do not like the authors telling me that Simla is “a miniature Sussex hamlet,” when of all the earthly things Simla could be, a Sussex hamlet is not one of them. Raj was, indeed, the cue for the unbelievably rapid disintegration of all European colonial domination everywhere. The composition of this book is such that you won't find it difficult to read through the pages, and the authors have weaved it with simple, yet strong literature. Too bad that the authors had decided to make this a drama, with the Viceroy Mountbatten as its tragic hero, and time as the villain.

Having been there most of the time in question and having assisted at most of the encounters, I can vouch for the accuracy of its general mood. However the author cleverly forgets how they flared the differences between religions in India when it suited them.The British, after ruling India in a paternalistic manner were impatient to leave and Mountbatten decided to make the partition occur in a single day in a rush to go home.
