The great battle of Pratapgad was fought between Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Adilshah General Afzalkhan. This battle has a great history and strategy related to it. Khan came down to the base of Pratapgad from Wai to kill Shivaji Maharaj but the planning and mind set of Marathas turned the tides of the war.
