Churchill's Secret War
- The British Empire and the Ravaging of India During World War II
- By: Madhusree Mukarjee
- Narrated by: James Adams
- Length: 12 hrs and 46 mins
In 1943 Winston Churchill and the British Empire needed millions of Indian troops, all of India's industrial output, and tons of Indian grain to support the Allied war effort. Such massive contributions were certain to trigger famine in India. Because Churchill believed that the fate of the British Empire hung in the balance, he proceeded, sacrificing millions of Indian lives in order to preserve what he held most dear. The result: the Bengal Famine of 1943-44, in which millions of villagers starved to death.
A fascinating narrative with a flawed narration
