Bangladesh: A Legacy of Blood is an extreme and stirring historical journey. The book engrosses its readers with brilliant writing and breath stopping suspense till the end. For the ones trying to comprehend with the history of Bangladesh which was turned into the hideous, shameless, and parasitic. this book has a lot to offer. The book came as a reminder of the tussle for power supremacy in George Orwell novella Animal Farm and also parallel to William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, the Bangla leaders institutionalized corruption for their own hunger for absolute power disregarding their own people. Anthony Mascarenhas in this book has presents the history sounds bit opinionated at times as he seems, in a way, show the plotters of the killings Major Farook Rahman and Major Khandaker Abdur Rashid in a slightly positive light.
