Product Description

Heroes of 1971 tells the stories of the fearless warriors who fought heroic battles to liberate Bangladesh, redrawing the map of South Asia in what is still considered the most conclusive military victory - in a 'just war' - in contemporary history.

Written by serving and retired officers of the three services to celebrate the memory of the four Param Vir Chakra and seventy-six Maha Vir Chakra awardees of the war, the essays in this book first appeared in The Tribune, Chandigarh. From the exploits of Flying Officer Nirmaljit Singh Sekhon when he faced Flying Bullets at the Srinagar airfield to the capture of prisoners of war at Faujdahat by Brigadier Anand Sarup's 'Kilo Force', this book catalogues it all, while the big-picture analyses by veterans, top bureaucrats and journalists help set the scene and enable readers to understand the war better.

The written accounts showcase the emphatic victory of our armed forces over Pakistan. These writings will serve as a tribute to the gallantry of all those who were part of the historic war effort.

- General Bipin Rawat, Chief of the Defence Staff

Written by the country's top defence writers and analysts, these articles will serve as a tribute to the gallantry action of all air warriors. The 'Golden Hour' of the IAF has been aptly captured in the articles on our warriors.

- Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhari, PVSM, AVSM, VM, ADC; Chief of the Air Staff

Captivating compilation of articles ... The naval battles during the war have been evocatively covered, highlighting some of the finest moments in Indian Navy's history. On the occasion of Swarnim Vijay Varsh, this publication aptly commemorates our victory and pays homage to our valiant soldiers, sailors, and air-warriors.

- Admiral Karambir Singh PVSM, AVSM, ADC; Chief of the Naval Staff
