The Proudest Day is an account of the end of the Raj, the most romantic of all the great empires. Anthony Read and David Fisher put the events of 1947 into perspective, telling the whole story in detail from its beginnings more than a century earlier. Their narrative takes a look at many of the events and personalities involved, especially the three charismatic giants - Ghandi, Nehru, and Jinnah - who dominated the final, increasingly bitter thirty years. Meanwhile, a succession of British politicians and viceroys veered wildly between liberalism and repression until the Raj became a powder keg, wanting only a match.
