Major Defence Operations Since 1947

Ranbir Singh (Author)
Synopsis Through this twelve chaptered book the author highlights the evolution of the Armed Forces through the wars fought and, more importantly, the lessons which have not been learnt. The book covers the four major wars with Pakistan besides the operations taken for integration of states – Hyderabad Police Action, Integration of Junagarh and Liberation of Goa, Daman and Diu. It also analyses the blunders of the Sino-Indian Conflict and the Operation Pawan Sri Lankan Odyssey. All the operations covered place on record the historical perspective and a critical analysis with a view to learn lessons. They effectively bring out the inside story of our loyal, brave and dedicated Jawans. The book has been written in an easy and lucid style with a defence flavour to bring to light the bravery and intrepidiness of our Armed Forces to the common people.
