Little, Brown & Co, publishers, London - ISBN:0316640727 first edition, 1997. hardcover, 6¼" x 9½", with dust jacket. Jacket protected in transparent covering. AS NEW book in AS NEW unclipped dust jacket. In less than a hundred years the British made themselves masters of India; a series of emergencies in the eighteenth century transformed the East India Company into the most formidable war machine in Asia, and conquest gathered its own momentum. Millions of Indians collaborated with their new rulers and made possible the government of so many by so few. This book contains much that is new, hidden and controversial on areas as varied as the Mutiny, the Great Game and the taxing of India. It also sheds new light on Mountbatten and the tragic events of 1946-47. Eights maps, over 40 b&w photographs, bibliography and index.
