"Nobody understands what I do for my country", an apparently original quote by the guy who was called "The ONE friend of Bangladesh", the undisputed leader of the Bangladeshis after the country became independent in 1971, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, sort of sums up the mood of the whole book. True or not, the events that are delineated in a Kafkaesque detail by Mr Mascarenhas paints a graphic and sordid tale about a country that could've been the mantelpiece of democracy, independence, economic and p [...]

Wow! As if I knew nothing of the history of my country! Well, though our leaders have failed to understand what needs to be done in Bangladesh, Anthony Mascarenhas- A Pakistani journalist, seems to have got it perfectly, as he ends this book stating "Machination and murder have been the curse of Bangladesh-its legacy of blood. It will not end until public accountability and the sequence of crime and punishment is firmly established".This book is not just an enlightenment to the post-independence [...]

A must read for all Bangladeshi!If you want to know the truth & the 100% objective truth about pre & post liberation Bangladeshi history, this is THE book. I belong to a generation who had not been exposed to the underlying politics & brutality related to war and the post-war turmoil that has shaped the country. We often get a politically biased view of history; both from people & publications who are often ideologically prejudiced & lack authentic information. This is the bo [...]

This is a must read for anyone interested in the history of Bangladesh post independence. The author is a reputed hand on the subject and has first hand knowledge being acquaintance with many a players. This is a tale of how dreams of a new nation went sour because of the very men it considered messiah. It is a tale of bloodshed after bloodshed & coup after coup. It is a tale of how lust for power destroys everything millions have sacrificed and worked for. Eye opening narration told in a gr [...]

We have been taught and made proud from our childhood about the liberation war that took place in our country. But for some strange reason, a brisk halt has been made in almost every textbook at the day when Bangladesh got liberated from Pakistani oppression, 16th December 1971 to be precise, and after that very day, everything else seemed to go blank. What went wrong with the country which had paid the highest price in the history of the world in exchange to its freedom, how did an incorrigible [...]

While Anthony Mascarenhas's Legacy of Blood is a standard read highlighting the atrocities committed by Pakistan's military against Bangladesh, if only Mascarenhas had lived to see today (foreign affairs and politics in the region) to provide his thought-leadership on Pakistan's continued denial and cover-up re history and the nation's downward spiral in terms of economic development and political leadership; and his nuanced and balanced understanding of Bangladesh's political outlook would have [...]

An amazing, scintillating, terrific and thrilling historical ride. I have no words for this historical book. Not only does it constitute the bloody history of the nation after its birth and the political turbulence during the first 15 years, but also tells the reader of the diaspora and the sufferings of the general public from corrupt and inept politicians, inefficient systems and fruitless policies designed for malpractice and the attempted formation of an authoritarian regime.

Truth is far gripping, stranger, and horrifying than friction. Such brilliant writing, holding breath-stopping suspense till the end. The book focuses on the wrongs as the author himself asserted. But it paints more than that. Anybody who is trying to understand the history of Bangladesh, our hideous, shameless and parasitic politics, corruption cycles, and why we are still in the state we are now, should give this book a definite read. No political leader should be deified. None at all. Power n [...]

I read different versions of history of 1975 to 1981,but this non-fiction by Anthony Mascarenhas seems much more legit. Even though the period was dark but Nov'75 has always been my favorite area in history of Bangladesh. Coup, re-coup; that was certainly a period of turmoil. I may sound a little heartless but this book is a 'real-life thriller'. This is a perfect example of 'truth is stranger than fiction'. No thriller writer in the whole world can plot this out what our military personnel did. [...]

This is a historically insightful book with some particularly fascinating anecdotes. It talks in great detail about the background of the key men involved in bringing about the violent coups and counter-coups in that tumultuous period after independence, and their misplaced nationalism and avarice for power. However, the work seems to be quite opinionated at times, and this somewhat discredits an ostensibly neutral view on the incidents in other areas of the book. Overall, an enjoyable read.

A must read book for every bengali people.How power and lust divert patriot leader's to killer . it's pathetic for us, we can not see our patriot leader in one row rather fighting each other.

A vivid depiction of the first decade of politics in independent Bangladesh. It humanizes the characters of Mujib and Zia in an impartial way as opposed to the portrayal of these two leaders as mythical God like beings in contemporary media. A great read for those who take an interest in historic events.
