The book is good in terms of its content with a balanced approach taking into account the person and position of the Prime Minister. The objectivity is well defined and keeps the book at a good tempo - though the chronology is not in order and can make time track a strugge.

The narration is brilliant with good delivery, pauses and modulation.

Horrible narration of mediocre content

Within the first 5 mins, you know that B. Andrew carries a horrifying accent and takes irregular pauses in narration that can totally translate the meaning.

There is virtually no voice modulation or voice/language expert used. It sounds like how a school kid will read a paragraph from a book. Really sorry but it spoils the content even further.

The content is what is already present in the public domain - nothing exclusive or enlightening. It is a rather sad experience.

We can excuse Tully for pronunciations - but not the narrator... Shabby work. I can appreciate the voice modulations to make the narrative interesting. But how is Bhajan Lal addressed as Bhajan Le? Too many such instances. I don't think there is derth of Indians who can do excellent narration in English.

Informative but not always accurate

The author has taken a an interestingly long and historic look at the subcontinent. But the information at many points is not accurate or complete in its nature.

The research and content is good. Three chapters on why we need to take an initiative to keep war records, how we have failed to do so, the academic apathy - 3 chapters on post script, references and suggested reading is a lingering too long. The narration is sub standard with no pauses, no voice modulation and zero emotions in the voice. The research though is amazing, certainly helped by access that is not possible for a commoner. Overall a good choice for one with an inclination for military history.

The content is too overladen with citations and cross references. It thereby goes into loops of parallel stories and loses focus. No language coordinator used in the production - hence pronunciations of names or places is incorrect at most places. Poor voice modulation. Narrative and narration, both are weak.
