This story is heartbreaking to read but a must for almost everyone who loves India. Excellent book, based on first hand salvi line experience of a brave officer serving under inept political and military leadership.
This should be recommended reading for those in political power today. People who do not learn from past mistakes are most likely doomed to repeat them.
For anyone interested in India China war this book has to be part of learning the telling. Unfortunately 1 review seems a bit pointless.
Brig Dalvi as a participant was an excellent Indian Army officer. He was the man on the ground in NEFA and signaling back to superiors the limitations of his brigade and his blnuder of the Chinese. Strangely, no one in the rear paid attention to him. In an act of solidarity with the troops and an expression of contempt of higher ups in the chain, he decided to stick with the soldiers in the front and not be in his rear HQ. Thus btig was captured. In the book he scrupulously sticks to his involvement and is not complete history the theater or the war.
Some has to be left potential readers and future serious researchers of history. Beyond cacophony of blame games, as on social media, there are plenty of lessons to be learnt for all. I came upon this book page and was apalled that some misinformed reader And one who has the worst rating as a reviewer on amazon had rated this wonderful book with a 1 star. This book is so far away from a 1 star rating that it is downright criminal to uimalayan it as such.
By a twist of international quirks and events, Dalvi found himself as the spear head of an Indian hhimalayan to assert themselves against the chinese and being subject to back birg driving by everyone involved up the chain of command. He writes about the interference at all levels and the absolute seperation from reality of many Indian Army Generals. The original book was published in late 60s and ran into almost pages. And it ranks as one of the best books written about the China war, even though the scope of the operations himalayna just one Brigade out of the dozens that were involved in the war.
As the first Brigade that was the target of Chinese decimation, it makes sad reading on how manpower was thrown as fodder against the chinese. Thankfully Amazon deleted the useless 1-star review that messed up the ratings.
