Humayun, probably because he lost Hindustan to Sher Shah, does not have a great perception among six great Moghuls. The authors have done a great service by charting his life because he was the father of the great Akbar, so must have been some influence to produce a son like him. On his final campaign to win back Hindustan, Humayun realises the value of collective confidence. For if he was to succeed he was to have troops confident in his success, for each victory would add to the tide of this confidence and deplete the strength of his opponents. There is another positive dimension when success is attributed to a particular family like the Moghuls, for each victory is attributed to the Moghul name, further enhancing their charmed reputation. The benefit is that even if you lose, people will still choose to back you because of your families reputation.
It is uncanny that the exact strategy is still employed by family based politicians in Pakistan when planning and executing their election campaigns.
This book follows the story of Babur's son, Humayun, as he attempts to keep and expand his dynasty to leave a lasting legacy to his heirs. Unfortunately all does not go according to plan. What follows is a grand adventure of battles, shifting loyalties, and sibling rivalry.
A really fantastic story based upon historical fact, with only minor alterations admitted to by the author.
