This is a month-by-month account of what happened in 1947 when the Punjab was partitioned as a consequence of the partition of India. Some 10 million Punjabis were forced to flee from their homes; 500,000 to 800,000 were killed. The story is told with the help of secret British reports and accounts of survivors and witnesses.



It is an unprecedented work and will most certainly become the standard reference on the partition of the Punjab.
