This book writes wrong info about Sambhaji and defames him.
Some mentions as "Sambhaji was incapable leader" are examples of this. Author completely misses the context or the situation. He neglects
Aurangzeb's army of 5 lakh on Maratha empire at the time of Sambhaji and his relentless fight against Mughals, Siddis, Portuguese for 9 years which protected and kept Maratha empire alive and fighting.
He also seems to have missed the fact that Soyarabai was indeed alive about a year after Sambhaji put some ministers to death for treason. He blatantly says "Sambhaji mercilessly killed his ministers" without stating reasons.
He doesn't even mentions Sambhaji's knowledge of languages, his literary contributions etc.
Not expected such poor book by this historian.
