This book is a careful documentation of the accession of Kashmir in 1947 based on declassified papers, correspondence and reports that have become available in the recent years. It provides a day to day account of the critical times when the fate of Kashmir was 'decided' in the context of Britain's geo-political compulsions and strategies.
