Overview: Britain’s precipitous and ill-planned disengagement from India in 1947–condemned as a "shameful flight" by Winston Churchill–had a truly catastrophic effect on South Asia, leaving hundreds of thousands of people dead in its wake and creating a legacy of chaos, hatred, and war that has lasted over half a century.Ranging from the fall of Singapore in 1942 to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, Shameful Flight provides a vivid behind-the-scenes look at Britain’s decision to divest itself from the crown jewel of its empire.Here then is the dramatic story of a truly pivotal moment in the history of India, Pakistan, and Britain.
