Overview: Freedom At Midnight

Freedom at Midnight is a non-fiction book, which describes the events of the Indian Independence struggle. The book gives a detailed account of the time period of 1947-48, which begins with the appointment of the last viceroy of British India, Lord Mountbatten and ends with the assassination of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. The authors of the book are Dominique Lapierre and Larry Collins. The book is an outcome of in-depth research and features detailed descriptions of events of historical significance. This edition of the book was published in 2011 by Vikas Publishing House. You can buy books online from one of the sellers mentioned in this page.

Freedom at Midnight casts a spotlight on the defining moments of history that led to India's independence. The book includes the descriptions of royal princely states and the extravagant lifestyles of their occupants, the British era, and the partition of British India to India and Pakistan, as well as the terrifying bloodshed that followed. It gives an insight into the events which led to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi and discusses the motives of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Jawaharlal Nehru, the leaders of the newly formed, free nations. It draws attention to the crucial boundary separating India and Pakistan. It explains the wrath of Hindus and Muslims who were misled by their leaders and the unforgettable massacre of millions of innocent and unfortunate people, who were forced to migrate to unknown lands. The significance of the book is that it tries to re-awaken the spirit of the present generation, by being empathetically considerate to the fact that leaders across the nation were united in their battle for a common cause of freedom. They realised a dream of a country free from inequality, illiteracy and poverty.
