A History of the Pakistan Army: Wars and Insurrections
The author gives a candid, no-holds-barred account of the Pakistan army. He describes its evolution, its brutal suppression of the former East Wing (now Bangladesh), the events leading to the overthrow of Prime Minister Bhutto in 1977, and other dramatic episodes. This new edition contains an additional chapter which describes the dramatic resignation of the Army Chief in 1998 (giving his hitherto unpublished reasons), and the intrusion into Indian-administered territory in Kashmir by Pakistan-backed militants in 1999. The author makes use of information provided by senior foreign officials as well as highly-placed Indian and Pakistani sources.
