Hugh Toyeas study of Subhash Chandra Bose is valuable on three counts: as a history of a little known facet of World War II, as a study in Anglo-Indian relations over a vital period, and as a study of the new kind of leaders in Asia. The story of Boseas life is of absorbing interest, and the author makes him live in all his idealism, fiery nationalism, political astuteness and overriding arrogance. But more important are its implications, which must make the reader seriously rethink the role of European-Asian relations and, in rethinking, arrive at a better understanding of what is happening now and what may happen.Bose did not yet leave Rangoon himself: there must be no appearance of precipitancy, the Japanese wouldallow no admission ... where instruction was based, apart from minor Japanese help, on the British training manuals of 1940and 1941.
