Book Description

Only two months

after India attained independence, the State of Jammu & Kashmir was invaded

by tribal hordes followed by a regular military invasion. Military operations in

this theatre lasted for over one year and ended with a ceasefire in January

1949. These operations have had a long hangover, affecting peace on the Indian

subcontinent for the last four decades, during which period this State has been

the scene of short and sharp military conflicts in 1965 and 1971.

This is the

first ever authentic account published covering the entire military campaign in

Kashmir from 1947 to 1949, written by an officer closely connected with these

operations. This narrative has been blended with personal reminiscences and

written in a very readable form for the general public. Apart from the gripping

narrative of the operations, the author has also provided a good insight into

the peculiar problems of operating at high altitude.
