Towards Independence and Partition
Chapter One explains how growing tensions in 1930s India led to Britain trying to find a solution through the 'Round Table Conferences'. The failure of these saw Britain introduce a new 'Government of India Act' in 1935, which was rejected by Congress and the Muslim League. Chapter Two explores the impact of the Second World War, discussing those in India who did or did not support it. After the Second World War, the big question that loomed was what form an independent India would take. It initially appeared that an agreement had been reached, but this proved to be short lived. In a final attempt by the British to find a solution, Lord Mountbatten was appointed as Viceroy. He decided to divide the country. So, on the 15th of August 1947 two new states were created, India and Pakistan.
