Details

The Shadow of The Great Game: The Untold Story of India's Partition provides a different perspective on the actual cause of the partition in India. The author was an ADC to Lord Mountbatten and he had unique insights into the mindsets of the personalities involved in the events leading up to India's independence and partition.

Using his personal knowledge as well as documented evidence, the author asserts that Britain insisted on the partition of India, mainly because of its fears over Soviet expansion into the region. This was a long-standing rivalry, involving the imperialistic ambitions of both Russia and Britain in the south Asian region. This rivalry was referred to as the great game.

The book continues to tell readers that after the Second World War, Britain feared losing control over the vast oil reservoirs in the Middle East. They felt that they needed a base in the Indian neighborhood, to prevent the Soviet Union from gaining a foothold in this region. The Shadow of The Great Game: The Untold Story of India's Partition also details the clash between Roosevelt and Churchill over the idea of dividing India.
