Very enlightening

Very good and brief review of British Raj and of events at the time. Only the narrator’s pronunciation of the the Indian names and places was many times very incorrect.

Short and Sweet

Muslim Gunpowder Empire Rises and Falls to a new Empire. The Mughals used to dealing with Portuguese and French had fallen to a state unable to deal with a new empire who had new methods and new tactics. Listen as a people win freedom from modern slavery.

UNIQUE/DIFFERENT

We see the beginnings of civilization, the merging of different groups & how they got along. Many different groups of people with different beliefs lived alongside each other. So for all the information on India without having to listen to a lengthy volume, this is audible for you. So thank you Captivating History for supplying this information to us!!!

why, white men, why?

I just don't understand why they get white men to narrate these books, it's so unnatural, they don't pronounce anything right?? It's mad whitewashed, and the actual book itself paints an inaccurate view of the empire, probably because it was written by a white man. We don't need colonisers to tell us our history. Jason Zenobia, learn the correct pronunciations.

Interesting

The two ruling parties in these audibles gives you the complete history of India. Influences left behind left an indelible mark on India. These influences are still felt today in India.

Mundane history of great people

Bunch of mundane history that reeks of colonial bias. struggled to make it through 20 minutes. Just talking about a king and what his life was like idk wouldn't reccomend.
