Reviews

"Exceptional...balances analysis, history and human compassion in a narrative that leaves one shaken" -- Juliet Nicolson, 5 stars * Daily Telegraph * "Almost impossible to put down" * New Statesman * "The Second World War is one of the most written-about episodes in all world history: every month sees a dozen new titles published. Yet, astonishingly, The Raj at War breaks new ground on almost every page" -- William Dalrymple * Spectator * "A striking example of people's history, packed with anecdotes, memories and information about a shared but largely unwritten global past" * Guardian * "Unprecedented in scope...rich both in detail and in its unique insights... Khan's history has paved the way for a more complex understanding of the Second World War as India's War" -- Vinay Lal * Indian Express * "A fascinating, vividly written history full of surprises, some of them shocking" * The Times * "Yasmin Khan...offers a richly researched social history of wartime India that is peppered with fascinating detail" * The Economist * "Remarkable Account... Compassionate, judicious and brilliantly readable, this is a compelling account of a dramatic, but little examined, aspect of history" * Daily Mail * "This fascinating book tells the story of World War Two's impact on India: the shattering of the ordered relations which underpinned the Raj making its end inevitable. It's also a much needed reminder of India's contribution to that war" -- Mark Tully "This fascinating book tells the story of World War Two's impact on India: the shattering of the ordered relations which underpinned the Raj making its end inevitable. It's also a much needed reminder of India's contribution to that war" -- Mark Tully
