Publisher's Summary

India has a rich history covering thousands of years, civilizations, the rise of religions and empires, British rule, revolution, independence, and much more....

In this book, we explore the magnificent history of India, from its ancient origins to its renaissance and concluding with its independence as a free nation. 

While there are many books that explore India’s unique history, few are enjoyable. Most books are hopelessly dry, overly academic, and just downright difficult to follow. Fortunately, this isn’t one of those books. 

In the minutes that follow, you’ll find well-written and accurate information without bias. This concise history will respect your time by getting right to the point and giving you what you came to learn. We strive to offer you a refreshing listen with reliable, well-referenced information.

The book is divided into three parts:

  • Part I: Ancient India - Discover the fantastic early civilizations and empires. Plus the cultural takeaways and perceptions from ancient times.
  • Part II: Medieval India - A detailed look at the Mughal campaigns that changed the face of India. Plus the Maratha empire that stood up to the mighty Mughal Sultanate and British involvement in this dynamic.
  • Part III: The Freedom Struggle - A story of awakening, independence, and partitions. Led by the greats of Gandhi, Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose, and so on.

And much, much more….

So if you want to find out more about Indian history, then this is the book for you.
