This is the story of the Indian subcontinent's independence struggle. At a time when many inside India were busy collaborating with the British to perpetuate their empire and their own enslavement, one man was abroad planning an independence war to liberate it. The man was Netaji Subhas Bose. This book traces the steps of Subhas from a child growing up at the turn of the century to his rise in the national movement. The author shows with great precision that of all the leaders in the 1920s and 1930s, it was only Subhas who had the foresight and vision to not only think of a viable liberation struggle, but to plan for the country's development in the post-independence years.
