Operation Blue Star The True Story
Operation Blue Star The True Story
Description
About the Book:

OPERATION Blue Star is one of the most controversial, holly-debated military operations in the world and certainly one which will be regarded as a turning point in contemporary Indian history.

This is an account by the Army officer who led it - touchingly honest, often anguished, minutely detailed. It is perhaps the most accurate and fascinating piece of reporting that we shall ever have on "one of the most extraordinary, sensitive and traumatic operations in military history." It hides nothing - not the unexpected reverses suffered by the Army, nor its miscalculations, nor the grit and determination of the militants it was assigned to flush out. Detailed operational sketch maps, photographs and documentary authentication lend credence to a detailed chronological account with all its traumas, breathstopping climaxes and inevitable denouements.

While demolishing many myths, criticisms and half-truths, it seeks bravely to answer many of the questions that plague not only Sikhs but all Indians.

The author, who was involved in the planning and execution of the Operation at every stage, is perhaps the only one who really knows what exactly transpired on the fateful night of 5 June 1984. This is his story. The whole truth. And nothing but the truth.
