KARGIL: From Surprise to Victory
KARGIL: From Surprise to Victory
Description
About the Book:

Even as the Indian prime Minister and his Pakistani counterpart huggd each other after signing the Lahore Declaration in February 1999, Pakistan Army personnel, in the garb of jehadi militants, infiltrated into Indian territory at Kargil and triggered off a limited conventional war between the world's newest nuclear-weapon states. The Pakistani Army achieved a tactical surprise, but failed at the Strategic level. The outbreak of war at Kargil also revealed that the Pakistani political leadership was out of synch with the thinking and planning of the country's military top brass. The author analyses the reasoning behind the Pakistani Army moves and tactics and also focuses on the individuals responsible.

This incisive volume uncovers several new details and attempts to answer all crucial questions such as : What was the extent of intelligence and surveillance failure of the Indian side and why? What was the rationale for India's grand strategy of restraint despite being a victim of aggression? What was India's military strategy and how was the war managed? How were the battles in various sectors planned and executed to recapture the strategically important high altitude mountaintops? What was the international response to the aggression due to the nuclear factor and what was the role-played by the USA and China? What was the impact of the war on Pakistan and India? What are the lessons to be learnt fro Kargil on the military, political and diplomatic fronts?

He rounds off the book with a survey of Indo-Pak security relations in the Post-Kargil era. In this context he takes stock of the Peace dialogue and its sustainability given the fact that Pakistan's military rulers have yet to shun terrorism as an instrument\ of state policy.

Testimonials
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
