Description

A comprehensive account of the war in Bangladesh, unique in that the author has firsthand experience of the operations in which he led his division to victory with distinction. In addition, he has the benefit of personal acquaintance with most of the military commanders on the Indian side, and with some from Pakistan.

The narrative is therefore based on authentic information obtained from practically all the Indian generals who participated in the campaign. He has brought out in ample measure the Pakistani point of view and perception of the war as seen by them and related by them to their opponents in discussions, after their surrender. General Lachhman Singh has covered the vast arena of the war of liberation leading to a decisive victory in Bangladesh in its various aspects including the geopolitical environment, strategy and tactics, partisan warfare, administration and post-victory diplomacy.

The reader gets an eye-witness account, laced with significant anecdotes, which depicts battle situations with all the drama and fog of war. The author has combined meticulous research with expensive and intimate knowledge of the theatre of operations and the various participants in a wide-ranging account. He has brought out lessons of military significance which touch on higher direction of war in our environment.
