A contrasting figure when put up against the likes of Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose is the figurehead of Indian civil resistance against the Britishers through military action. At times revered for his values of nationalism, political astuteness and idealism, Bose was also a controversial figure for his support of Japan and Germany in the Second World War, a side that he chose wrongly in wanting to face off against the British. Hugh Toye speaks with his own voice, long known for leading the manhunt against Bose and his army. The book itself serves as the history of a lesser known side to the Second World War, and it is perhaps the only indifferent biography on Netaji, for though Toye has no reason to like him, he finds reasons to admire and perhaps respect the man he hunted.
