New Delhi is the capital city of the Republic of India. Situated within the metropolis of Delhi, New Delhi was planned by Edwin Lutyens, a leading 20th century British architect. It is the seat of the Government of India and the Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi.
New Delhi was where the Army of India made its last stand before finally surrendering to the Germans in 1947, even though imperial forces had been ordered to surrender a lot earlier. Before the fighting ended, the city had suffered considerable damage. After the formal surrender was signed, the city became Walther Model's administrative capital for the German forces occupying India.
