This volume presents personalities who were instrumental in India's struggle for freedom. We have included all famous personalities and some hitherto unknown freedom fighters. Our main aim is to show the contribution of these freedom fighters. India's struggle for freedom from British is unique in whole world. On the one hand there was Gandhiji's non-violence and on the other hand there were those having faith in violence. Whatever their ideology, their aim was one-India's independence. Each entry contains a succinct but careful evaluation of a subject's contributions as well as un up-to-date bibliography.
