"The Proudest Day is an account of the end of the Raj, the most romantic of all the great empires. Anthony Read and David Fisher put the events of 1947 into perspective, telling the whole story in detail from its beginnings more than a century earlier. Their narrative takes a look at many of the events and personalities involved, especially the three charismatic giants - Ghandi, Nehru, and Jinnah - who dominated the final, increasingly bitter thirty years. Meanwhile, a succession of British politicians and viceroys veered wildly between liberalism and repression until the Raj became a powder keg, wanting only a match."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)

"This book is a riveting account of the end of the Raj, the most romantic of
all the great empires. The authors tell the epic story in compelling and
colorful detail from its beginnings more than a century earlier; their powerful
narrative takes a fresh look at many of the events and personalities involved,
especially the three charismatic giants - Gandhi, Nehru, and Jinnah - who
dominated the final, increasingly bitter thirty years. Meanwhile, a succession
of British politicians and viceroys veered wildly between liberalism and
repression until the Raj became a powder keg, wanting only a match." --back
