Netaji's major political study of the movement for independence in which he himself was a leading participant.
Bose wrote first part of his narrative, 1920-42, as an exile in Europe and the second part, 1935-42, also in Europe eight years later. When the first part was published in 1935 it was immediately banned by the British government. The book was, however, warmly welcomed in literary and political circles in Europe. The Manchester Guardian described it as perhaps the most interesting book which has yet been written by an Indian politician on Indian politics. Romain Rolland hailed it as an indispensable work for the history of the Indian movement.
