This eye-witness account of the Life of Hyder Ali Khan gives authentic information about the Prince, the person, the general and the soldier. Not confined merely to the activities of Hyder, it also gives a side-by-side account of the revolutions in India prior to the aggrandizement of Hyder. To know Hyder in a more perfect sense, the author draws the portraits of the relations and intimate friends of that great prince. In the same spirit he gives description of the establishments, laws, customs, forms and norms of government of his time.
Historians and researchers shall find this work of particular value for being scribed by a first-hand observer rather than by someone altogether unacquainted with Hyder.
