John Masters

Lieutenant Colonel John Masters was a British novelist and regular officer of the Indian Army.

In World War II, he served with the Chindits behind enemy lines in Burma, and became the GSO1 (chief staff officer) of the 19th Indian Infantry Division. Masters is principally known for his historical novels set in India, notably Bhowani Junction, which was turned into a successful film. His fiction has been criticised for its imperialist tone, but equally acknowledged for its sympathetic treatment of Indian nationalists. He also wrote three highly-praised volumes of autobiography.
