Shameful Flight

The Last Years of the British Empire in India
Stanley Wolpert
Ranging from the fall of Singapore in 1942 to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, this book provides a vivid behind-the-scenes look at Britain’s decision to divest itself from the crown jewel of its empire. The author, a leading authority on Indian history, paints memorable portraits of all the key participants including Gandhi, Churchill, Attlee, Nehru, and Jinnah, with a special focus on the British viceroy, Lord Louis Mountbatten.
