Dalyrmples use of historical facts is one sided and extremely biased. Ahmad Shah Abdali never went to Delhi in 1762 so Dalrymples claim that he ousted Imad ul Mulk in 1762 is incorrect (page-259... More > ). By and large the book is a repetition of well known facts of British Indian history . However Dalrymple has wasted a book in vain as it brings out nothing new . His whole conclusion about the company and the title of the book “Anarchy” is extremely questionable and debatable :--< Less

Kaushik Roy has excessive tendency of delivering Solomons judgements like in his introduction he inflates Indian Armys role in North Africa.Whereas in North Africa British had overwhelming superiority in tanks and the Germans never had any chance of winning the war in this theatre:-- Why Kaushik Roy has to exaggerate and make inflated statements is hard to understand as on page-10 of his introduction to the essays. On page 12 Kaushik Roys claim that there have been few studies of British Indian Armys frontier operations is hilarious , since frontier warfare has been studied and analysed excessively :-- How Kaushik Roy can use descriptions like “few studies” is strange.
