Really well written history. Going into it I thought I'd dislike Churchill and admire Gandhi, but it turns out I have just the opposite feelings for these men. Aurthur Herman does a great job of balancing both lives, providing the history needed for the reader of the events surrounding the late 19th century and after the second World War, while still keeping a clear focus on India and the goals of these two men. I'm not an avid reader of history but this book kept me enthralled throughout.
