About this title


Postindependence, the Indian Army has been rendering invaluable service to the nation in the sphere of national integration, national defense, and national stability. This book is a record of that service from 1947 to 1984. A strong professional army at the command of the Indian Union was an important factor, which weighed with many Indian princes when they chose to sign the Instrument of Accession in 1947. With its personnel drawn from all parts of the country, belonging to different religious, linguistic, and ethnic groups and living together in complete harmony, the army has been a living symbol of national integration. This book gives an admirable account of the battles fought during these wars. It is not a drum-and-bugle history trying to glorify events and cover up failures. The author has produced an objective account after painstaking research.

About the Author:

Major K.C. Praval retired from the Army in 1969 after 35 years of service. He embarked on a career in the Army at a time when the British Empire was at its pinnacle. During World War II he served with the Fourth Indian Division in Egypt where he won the Indian Distinguished Service Medal. He had varied experience in the Army and, besides contributing to leading dailies and journals in India, he published two highly acclaimed works India’s Paratroopers and Valour Triumphs (a history of the Kumaon Regiment).
