Partition of India and the transfer of power in 1947 constitute the most momentous period of modern Indian history. Equally fascinating to the historian and the common man, the Partition left many unanswered questions—Why did it become imminent? Who did it benefit? Could it have been prevented?
Mountbatten and the Partition of India offers a series of candid interviews with Lord Mountbatten, the last Viceroy of British India and the first Governor-General of independent India, conducted by world-renowned authors, Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre of the Freedom at Midnight and City of Joy fame. Herein, Mountbatten reveals his frank, and often astounding, assessment of the events, personalities and issues of the time.
The second part of the book contains a selection of revelatory documents, primarily Viceroy's Personal Reports to the Secretary of State for India, and also other interesting documents such as Jawaharlal Nehru's letter to Mountbatten detailing his emotional reaction to the draft plan for transfer of power.
