Manas Defence Yearbook 2010-2011

S. Padmanabhan (Author) S. Pattabhiraman (Author)
Synopsis The release of the second edition of this Yearbook is a gratifying moment in the four decade old publishing history of Manas Publications which has had a strong tradition of publishing numerous books authored by serving as well as retired illustrious military officers.

Although Manas has been publishing numerous defence reference books, the need for a flagship publication in the form of a Yearbook was strongly felt due to the rapid changes taking place in India’s strategic security environment and developments in military technology worldwide.

General Padmanabhan had a highly successful career during which he distinguished himself in fighting militancy in the Punjab, North-eastern states and Jammu and Kashmir where he commanded 15 Cops at Srinagar during the critical years 1993-95.
