Product Description

Seventeenth-century India. Chhatrapati Shivaji's dominion has been firmly established over the Deccan peninsula. Troubled by the mounting European threat along the Konkan coast, the Maratha empire turns to Kanhoji Angrey, master mariner, excellent swordsman and astute strategist, to lead its navy. For the next few decades, until his death in 1729, no matter who rules the land or lords over the trading settlements, none can defy Kanhoji's hold over the waters of the Konkan coast.

Join Kanhoji on his many adventures and naval campaigns as he courts danger and evades capture. Manohar Malgonkar's thrilling storytelling in The Sea Hawk brings to life this 'Lord of the Konkan'.

Long out of print, this Indian classic is once again available in a stunning new edition!

'The swashbuckling tale of Kanhoji Angrey, the seventeenth-century sea admiral who fought the British and the Dutch with admirable courage and gallantry, has inspired generations. And no one tells it better than master storyteller Manohar Malgonkar. It's wonderful to see this classic revived sixty-five years after its original write.'- Pritish Nandy, poet, journalist and maker of films

Kanhoji Angrey's is the second most important story, after Chhatrapati Shivaji, that unfolded in the rocky and rough terrains of Maharashtra. Kanhoji, however, isn't as lucky as Chhatrapati Shivaji. The visionary warrior who laid the foundation of India's navy has largely been forgotten. The Sea Hawk is the story of the late Maratha fighter narrated by one of the master storytellers of our times, Manohar Malgaonkar. This captivating real-life fiction is a must-read for students of history and the common man alike. It's a tribute to one of our unsung heroes.' - Girish Kuber, author and editor, Loksatta

'This lively and well written account of a famous Maratha naval commander ... sweeps the reader along at a rattling pace.' - The Times Literary Supplement, London

'Very readable ... full of historical information.' - The Times of India

'A book of historical biography so skillfully done.' - All India Radio

'A rare combination of history and literature.' - The Hindu
