Book Description Soft cover. Condition: New. When Dhondu Pant Nana Saheb, the adopted son of exiled Maratha Peshwa Bajirao II, is denied rights as the Peshwa s heir by the British after his father s death, he makes an appeal to reclaim his title, only to be rebuffed again. Then, as a mutiny breaks out in Kanpur in 1857 and Nana Saheb emerges as its leader, he is labelled by the British as a villainous monster, a barbarous butcher and the criminal leader of the Sepoy Mutiny , which sweeps across India from 1856 to 1859. Yet, to a nation in turmoil, he becomes a hero who stands up to the colonial oppression and emerges as a forerunner to the leaders who bring freedom to the nation less than a century later. In The Devil s Wind, Nana Saheb s story-a significant, turbulent and intrigue-filled chapter in India s history-is skilfully brought to life by master storyteller Manohar Malgonkar in vivid, inventive detail.
