History with letters backing the same!

Very well written with factual data and details! I love this author!
He has introduced all major historical characters with their own brief backgrounds who have played major role in life and conquests of Peshwe Baji Rao.

Additionally no drama or unnecessary descriptions of lavishness of either king or the peshwa. The entire focus is on his military activities and his strategies! Loved it!
