history from its most entertaining perspective
If you are looking for entertsinment as well as information listen to this book. Alex von Tunzelmann portrays historical personalities in an affective and personal light and gives a strikingly different picture of the era than our history books did, thus turning facts and figures into thoughts that stick in your head.
Gandhi, in Western cultures nowadays beheld as a saint, is depicted as a rather controversial historical figure, while the love live of the Mountbattens appears more progressive than one would assume in that time and Lord Mountbatten could be one of Jane Austen's caricatures.
Von Tunzelmann writes very clearly and elaborately, so that people who learned English as a second language (like me) can follow and enjoy her writing.
