    Do you know of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre? It is also referred to as the Amritsar massacre. Read this book and find out. Learning about the massacre opens your eyes to British colonialism as with a punch. The massacre took place on April 13, 1919, in Amritsar which is located in ...

    I knew a little about the Amritsar massacre but found this extended my understanding exponentially. Post-colonial history has to be seen from the perspective of the colonised and marginalised, and this story of rage and revenge makes so many connections, not just with Indian independen...

    I seem to be on a real India kick lately [I cannot seem to learn enough about this fascinating country and the people that live there] and so when I saw this book on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to read more history of this amazing county. I was NOT expecting the book I read. ...

    2019 is the centenary of the Jallianwallah Bagh Massacre, one of Britain's most heinous crimes against their empire, and sadly one of which the vast majority of Brits are largely unaware. Anita Anand has taken the anniversary as a great opportunity to tell the tale of one man, Udham Si...

    Written more like a novel, this is an incredible tale of a slice of history about which I have to admit I knew next to nothing. Weaving together the lives of those involved in this tale of horror, rejection, revenge and adoration, all sides of the incident are examined and an incred...

    This is a biographical account of Udham Singh, the man who is revered as a martyr hanged for the crime of assassinating Michael o' Dwyer, the lieutenant governor of the state of Punjab who endorsed Reginald Dyer's action to carry out the Amritsar massacre. Very well researched, very we...

    Being from Punjab the Amritsar massacre is very close to me. Unforgettable part of Punjab history. On eve of 100 years of this horrific I decided to read this book. The book is one of the best non fiction I read so far. Not only the point that the event is so personal to me, the book i...

    Anand has a brilliant way of weaving this complicated & heartbreaking history. As I was never taught about Empire in my British education I am trying to learn it on my now. Anand takes her well researched topic and accounts from the day and modern times and makes it read like a wel...

    What a story ! Thoroughly researched and told in an engaging way. I learned a lot about the horrors of colonialism and the mindset of those in power. Some interesting insights into Ghandi also. There were also very interesting references to Ireland and Africa at this time . Highly reco...

    Interesting telling of one man?s relentless pursuit of vengeance. The Hindu-German collaboration and Indo Bolshevik conspiracy to bring down British empire through the Ghadars was indeed fascinating. Enough to create a Hollywood/ Bollywood movie .. ...

    And a patient author, Anita Anand, who uncovered an extraordinary level of detail and depth to create a profile of a complex person, and the devious might of the British officials who united to stifle him. ...

    Well written and researched book. As a Sikh born and raised in the Uk we are still brought up with the story of Udham Singh and Bhagat Singh. It?s great that the remarkable story of this man is being added to the mainstream discourse about Empire. ...

    Very interesting. Written in a journalistic way, a bit like reading a thesis. ...

    A very interesting story but dragged out a little too much. ...

    A well researched and compelling story ...

    Exceptional telling of a historical event that should be required reading. ...

    This is a biographical account of Udham Singh, the man who is revered as a martyr hanged for the crime of assassinating Michael o' Dwyer, the lieutenant governor of the state of Punjab who endorsed Reginald Dyer's action to carry out the Amritsar massacre. Very well researched, very we...

    Being from Punjab the Amritsar massacre is very close to me. Unforgettable part of Punjab history. On eve of 100 years of this horrific I decided to read this book. The book is one of the best non fiction I read so far. Not only the point that the event is so personal to me, the book i...

    What a story ! Thoroughly researched and told in an engaging way. I learned a lot about the horrors of colonialism and the mindset of those in power. Some interesting insights into Ghandi also. There were also very interesting references to Ireland and Africa at this time . Highly reco...

    Interesting telling of one man?s relentless pursuit of vengeance. The Hindu-German collaboration and Indo Bolshevik conspiracy to bring down British empire through the Ghadars was indeed fascinating. Enough to create a Hollywood/ Bollywood movie .. ...

    Well written and researched book. As a Sikh born and raised in the Uk we are still brought up with the story of Udham Singh and Bhagat Singh. It?s great that the remarkable story of this man is being added to the mainstream discourse about Empire. ...

    Being from Punjab the Amritsar massacre is very close to me. Unforgettable part of Punjab history. On eve of 100 years of this horrific I decided to read this book. The book is one of the best non fiction I read so far. Not only the point that the event is so personal to me, the book i...

    Anand has a brilliant way of weaving this complicated & heartbreaking history. As I was never taught about Empire in my British education I am trying to learn it on my now. Anand takes her well researched topic and accounts from the day and modern times and makes it read like a wel...

    What a story ! Thoroughly researched and told in an engaging way. I learned a lot about the horrors of colonialism and the mindset of those in power. Some interesting insights into Ghandi also. There were also very interesting references to Ireland and Africa at this time . Highly reco...

    Do you know of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre? It is also referred to as the Amritsar massacre. Read this book and find out. Learning about the massacre opens your eyes to British colonialism as with a punch. The massacre took place on April 13, 1919, in Amritsar which is located in ...

    I knew a little about the Amritsar massacre but found this extended my understanding exponentially. Post-colonial history has to be seen from the perspective of the colonised and marginalised, and this story of rage and revenge makes so many connections, not just with Indian independen...

    I seem to be on a real India kick lately [I cannot seem to learn enough about this fascinating country and the people that live there] and so when I saw this book on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to read more history of this amazing county. I was NOT expecting the book I read. ...

    2019 is the centenary of the Jallianwallah Bagh Massacre, one of Britain's most heinous crimes against their empire, and sadly one of which the vast majority of Brits are largely unaware. Anita Anand has taken the anniversary as a great opportunity to tell the tale of one man, Udham Si...

    Written more like a novel, this is an incredible tale of a slice of history about which I have to admit I knew next to nothing. Weaving together the lives of those involved in this tale of horror, rejection, revenge and adoration, all sides of the incident are examined and an incred...

    This is a biographical account of Udham Singh, the man who is revered as a martyr hanged for the crime of assassinating Michael o' Dwyer, the lieutenant governor of the state of Punjab who endorsed Reginald Dyer's action to carry out the Amritsar massacre. Very well researched, very we...

    Interesting telling of one man?s relentless pursuit of vengeance. The Hindu-German collaboration and Indo Bolshevik conspiracy to bring down British empire through the Ghadars was indeed fascinating. Enough to create a Hollywood/ Bollywood movie .. ...

    And a patient author, Anita Anand, who uncovered an extraordinary level of detail and depth to create a profile of a complex person, and the devious might of the British officials who united to stifle him. ...

    Well written and researched book. As a Sikh born and raised in the Uk we are still brought up with the story of Udham Singh and Bhagat Singh. It?s great that the remarkable story of this man is being added to the mainstream discourse about Empire. ...

    Very interesting. Written in a journalistic way, a bit like reading a thesis. ...

    A very interesting story but dragged out a little too much. ...
