A gripping account of all the battles that took place during the 1971 Indo-Pak War. Armour’s role has been discussed and analysed in detail, even though the book contains well-researched accounts of all the battles in detail. The narration meanders from macro politics and diplomatic initiatives to micro subunit actions. Narratives from across the border are also included to present a balanced view to the reader. The book contains some rare photographs, documents and maps which keep the interest alive while reading the script.
