    A great work. Can only imagine the effort it would have taken to do the research and secretly publish this - more than a 100 years ago! Make at least one more person read this book. Salutations to Sri Savarkar!!!

    While the historical significance and background of the book is fascinating, it is a tedious read with rambling and exclamatory description of Indian glory, interspersed with actual and speculated events. As it was meant mainly written to inspire nationalism and counter an entirely colonial telling of history, I try not to judge too harshly. The story of the the conspiracy and the people involved in it is very interesting. It's a little repetitive and overly sentimental, but Savarkar manages to f While the historical significance and background of the book is fascinating, it is a tedious read with rambling and exclamatory description of Indian glory, interspersed with actual and speculated events.

The story of the the conspiracy and the people involved in it is very interesting. It's a little repetitive and overly sentimental, but Savarkar manages to flesh out the characters and the story very well. A worthwhile read as an example of agitprop that went on to inspire scores of young nationalists, and insightful if read as such. Perhaps the most striking thing about the book is the fact that the 24 year old who wrote such a fiercely secular book became the father of the Hindu fascist movement. Oh, well.

    Hats off to the work by Babuji. It can be called as a 'Bhagavatgeeta' for all revolutionaries. Even today the wordings in the book are inspirational. A must read book by all youngsters. Thanks to Sawarkarji. #VandeMataram

    incredible book. It have gone through the journey that i have never heard or taught in my.life. i feel that i haven't given true and clear information of our history especially in time of independence somehow movement of Gandhijee always given priority but the fact is that such a independence​ war gave a platform. The way Savarkarjee has written i am not surprised that it was banned before publication. Thousand salute to him. Really my thoughts are very much affected by him after reading his boo incredible book.

An independence without shedding blood has less value in mind of people, i strongly believe that. जय हिंद। वंदे मातरम

    There are few books that show the glory of Indian independence and the history of the same. Well, this book has got the same thing with it. The book is written by one of the famous freedom fighters, prolific Marathi writers, Veer Sawarkar. It portrays the then Indian history and unwinds each and everything slowly, but in a purposeful manner. This is the reason, the author is still referred as one of the best literary figures in Marathi and so The republic of India. It's a great and an insightful read There are few books that show the glory of Indian independence and the history of the same. Well, this book has got the same thing with it.

    Probably the first book written on The Indian War of Independence 1857. No doubt why this book was banned. Salute to Savarkar.

    The book is a masterly history that tells the authentic story of the Indian Revolution of 1857. Since the revolution failed, its story is hardly known to modern Indians today; and what little is known is told through a British prism. A key reason is that this book, written by the 24 year old Veer Savarkar to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1857 revolution (but actually published in London on the 52nd anniversary of the rising in Meerut, i.e., 10th May 1909) was banned by the British even B The book is a masterly history that tells the authentic story of the Indian Revolution of 1857. Since the revolution failed, its story is hardly known to modern Indians today; and what little is known is told through a British prism. A key reason is that this book, written by the 24 year old Veer Savarkar to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1857 revolution (but actually published in London on the 52nd anniversary of the rising in Meerut, i.e., 10th May 1909) was banned by the British even BEFORE it was published. A smuggled version was first published in Holland, then in France, before it finally made it to print in London. Meanwhile the author was arrested, and was sent to solitary confinement (and extreme torture) in "Kalapani" (the Cellular Jail at Port Blair, Andaman Islands). Sadly, the book ban remained in place until 1946, and was never entirely lifted thereafter, making it permanently difficult to obtain the book — which used to be (clandestinely) the “Bible” (or should we say Mahabharata) of all Indian revolutionaries in the 1920s and 1930s (including Bhagat Singh and Surya Sen), as well as for the Ghadarites in WWI and the INA in WWII. I finally was able to read a reprint issued in 2019, and hence available at amazon.in. The most striking feature of the book is the passion with which the author extols the glories of the heroic leaders and warriors of that war, and in particular the Hindu-Muslim unity that lay at its heart — and made it so potent against the might of British technological and strategic superiority. This is most evident in how he describes the death of Moulvi Ahmed Shah (one of the Indian heroes who had captured Bareilly and much of Awadh as late as May 1858) at the hands of the cowardly traitor, Raja Jagannath Singh of Powen and his brother. Similarly, the role of Jung Bahadur Rana of Nepal in helping the British by outflanking Tatya Tope and his heroic forces after they’d reconquered Lucknow is thoroughly and frankly exposed. Tragically, the British won because the Rajas of Patiala, Jind, Nabha (whose descendants are still very much part of our modern elite) and Kashmir were like immovable rocks of support to the British. But the real story of course begins with Nana Saheb (the adopted son of the feckless last Maratha Peshwa, Baji Rao II) and his assistant Azimullah Khan seeking support from the Russians and Ottomans for their coming revolution, and then meticulously planning it through visits in 1856 to Ambala, Meerut, Jhansi, Bareilly, Barrackpore (each of the places that would rise up in 1857) to plan and instigate the sipahis. The chapatis with incendiary messages were their doing, not some spontaneous unplanned eruption. Mangal Pandey acted three months too early (the actual war had been planned to begin on 23rd June, the centenary of the tragic Battle of Polashi via which the British had gained the vast province of Bengal). And the uprising in Meerut on 10th May was too early as well; once they’d acted, however, Bareilly and all Ayodhya (the original name for what was then known as “Awadh” or “Oudh”) rose up in revolt and they soon captured Delhi. Nana Saheb’s forces captured Kanpur and replanted the saffron flag of the Marathas there and across North India, in close alliance with the Mughals. Tatya Tope and Rani Lakshmibai in early-1858, Kunwar Singh and Amar Singh in Bihar, the Nawab of Farrukhabad, Bakht Khan and his forces from Bareilly, Nana Saheb and Bala Rao are all described in heroic detail. The tragic story of how Delhi was lost on 20th September — after Patiala enabled a massive British siege train to relieve the beleaguered British on Delhi’s ridge -- is told in graphic detail. It is a story that we all must know and read, so that the British-inspired story that 1857 was a mere “mutiny” can be buried once and for all. In reality, the sepoys rose and fought in the name of the Mughal emperor on whose behalf the East India Company ruled, based on the 1713 firman from emperor Farrukhsiyar (and, until 1835, the EICo implicitly acknowledged this by issuing its coins in the name of the Mughal emperor). The book lays bare the horrific massacres by the British (for instance, the burning of dozens of villages around Benares, and the indiscriminate slaughter of over 6000 civilians in the area around Allahabad) soon after the revolution began. Tragically, a book banned by the British has never been properly unbanned by independent India. So three generations have been deprived of the heroic story of how Hindus and Muslims combined their forces in 1857-58 to nearly bring the British Empire to its knees. This great secular story needs to be read and widely known.
