Publisher's Summary

At 4 PM on a dark, wet, winter's evening in November 1862, a cheap coffin was buried in eerie silence - no lamentations, no panegyrics, for as the British commissioner in charge of the funeral insisted, "No vesting will remain to distinguish where the last of the Great Moghuls rests". This Mughal was Bahadur Shah Zafar II, one of the most talented, tolerant, and likeable of his remarkable dynasty, who found himself leader of a violent uprising he knew from the start would lead to irreparable carnage.Zafar's frantic efforts to unite his forces proved tragically futile. The Siege of Delhi was the Raj's Stalingrad, and Mughal Delhi was left an empty ruin. The Last Mughal charts the desecration and demise of a man, his dynasty, his city, and civilizations mercilessly ravished by fractured forces and vengeful British troops.
