    About The Book
Shivaji's Carnatic Expedition is one of the greatest sagas of Maratha history, and Indian Medieval history. After his coronation in 1674, Shivaji planned this expedition with great care and sagacity. He needed a substantial kingdom to match this title of 'Chattrapati'. He needed space for strategic defence in depth. He needed a place where he could, if the need arose, send his second son Rajaram away from the tempestous Sambhaji.

He had 2 bitter foes, the Mughals and the Adilshah. To keep them at bay and secure the friendship of Qutub Shah (the enemy's enemy should be befriended) needed diplomatic skill of the highest order. Abu Hasan Tanashah was won over and he supported Shivaji with money and a small contingent of troops. Militarily it was an astonishing success. To march nearly 3000 kilometers, much of it through enemy territory, to conquer a larger area.

The author describes and analyses all the aspects of this expedition the reasons that prompted Shivaji to undertake, his route, his meeting with Qutubshah, his battles and his meeting with his brother Venkoji. The main places of Shivaji's route have also been described six maps, twelve figures and sixteen photographs supplement the text and add to the value of the book.

The author travelled from Pune to Thanjavur and back visiting all the places where Shivaji had gone. He also saw some other sites like Bijapur, Bidar, Gulbarga etc. A description of these other sites are not included in this book.

The book should prove to be a valuable addition to any library; private or public.
