The Battle of Chhamb is considered to be the fiercest, bloodiest, most intense and decisive battle of the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war. Prime Minister Indira Gandhi termed it as the ‘toughest’. Pakistan had amassed a very large and formidable force under 23 Infantry Division for their offensive; it comprised five infantry brigades, one armoured brigade and 31 artillery batteries. in fact the artillery employed by Pakistab in the Chhamb sector was more than they had to defend themselves in East Pakistan ( now Bangladesh).
This battle holds lessons for India even today and the book is of interest to anyone who wants to know more about the history of South Asia.
