This book is about Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and INA. The Indian National Army (INA; Azad Hind Fauj : Free Indian Army). It was an armed force formed by Indian nationalists in 1942 in Southeast Asia during World War II. Its aim was to secure Indian independence from British rule. It formed an alliance with Imperial Japan in the latter’s campaign in the Southeast Asian theatre of WWII. The army was first formed in 1942 under Mohan Singh, by Indian PoWs of the British-Indian Army captured by Japan in the Malayan campaign and at Singapore. This first INA collapsed and was disbanded in December that year after differences between the INA leadership and the Japanese military over its role in Japan’s war in Asia. It was revived under the leadership of Subhas Chandra Bose after his arrival in Southeast Asia in 1943. The army was declared to be the army of Bose’s Arzi Hukumat-e-Azad Hind (the Provisional Government of Free India).Under Bose’s leadership, the INA drew ex-prisoners and thousands of civilian volunteers from the Indian expatriate population in Malaya (present-day Malaysia) and Burma. This second INA fought along with the Imperial Japanese Army against the British and Commonwealth forces in the campaigns in Burma, in Imphal and at Kohima, and later against the successful Burma Campaign of the Allies.

S.A. Ayer was the author of this book born in Tamil Nadu in 1898 the author started his career as a journalist in Mumbai in 1918 and became Reuter’s special correspondent in Thailand in 1941. He joined the Indian Independence League in Bangkok a year later and was Minister of Publicity and Propaganda in the provisional government of Azad Hind. He accompanied Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose from Singapore to Saigon on his last known flight on August 16/17, 1945. After a visit to Japan in 1951, he submitted a report to Jawaharlal Nehru on Netaji’s disappearance. He has also written another book on Netaji which is entitled Unto Him a Witness. This book is really so good and very much helpful to know about the Indian Nation Army and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
