Air Power and Counter Insurgency a Review: Jammu and Kashmir Model

A K Tiwary (Author)
Synopsis Will Kashmir stay as an integral part of India? Or the insurgency will lead to its breakaway? Can increased application of air power help to contain insurgency? Some unwelcome facts stare us in the face when we look at Jammu and Kashmir problem. In last 12 years, the insurgency, barring a short period, has continued and is beginning to increase in intensity. Large number of ground forces have been tied up to fight the insurgency. The strategy adopted so far has yielded less than desired results. It is time we reviewed the strategy. Air power has helped contain insurgencies very successfully in 1920s-1930s. It was successful in 1950s-60s too. In more recent times it has had mixed record. With suitable strategy and equipment it is possible to employ air power in far more effective ways. This book is a study of this problem.
