Description

After Bhishma is cut down at the end of the previous book of the Maha-bharata, the book which bears his name, Duryodhana selects Drona as leader of his forces. Drona accepts the honor with Bhishma's blessing, despite his ongoing personal conflicts as mentor to both the Pandava and Kaurava heroes in their youth. The fighting rages on, with heavy losses on both sides. Furious and frustrated, Duryodhana accuses Drona of collaborating with the enemy, but he replies that as long as Arjuna is on the field, the Pandavas will remain invincible. When Arjuna is finally diverted from the main action of the battle, Yudhi-shthira entrusts Arjuna's son Abhimanyu with the task of making a breach in the Kaurava formation. Abhimanyu rampages through Drona's army, but at last is cornered by several Kaurava warriors and finally killed by Jayad-ratha.

The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome.
