The year 1971 saw the eastern half of Pakistan (now Bangladesh) rise in revolt against the military regime of the country which had unleashed a reign of terror to crush the people's demand for independence. There were indiscriminate killing, burning and looting of the unarmed civilians. An underground resistance movement spearheaded by students came into being to fight the oppressor. A ful-fledged war of liberation ensued. The breathtaking events of 1971 are faithfully recorded in the present volume. It is a first-hand account by the author who along with her son and husband took an active part in the struggle for freedom. She had herself witnessed some of the events. For the rest she gathered facts from authentic sources. Written in the form of a diary, -the book was originally published in Bengali. This English rendering of it now presents the story of Bangladesh's war of independence to a larger audience.
