  • Description
    In December 1971 Bangladesh was born. Its birthing was among the most painful of any new nation: it had suffered a brutal genocide conducted by its former countrymen from West Pakistan and a war for liberation fought between the indigenous Mukti Bahini (Liberation Army) and the Indian Armed Forces on one side and the West Pakistani Armed Forces on the other. Open war broke out on the Western and Eastern fronts in December 1971. The war ended quickly, with the West Pakistani Army surrendering in Dacca two weeks later. A significant factor in facilitating the Indian Armys rapid progress to Dacca was the Indian Air Force (IAF) which proved itself to be a formidable fighting force. Eagles over Bangladesh: The Indian Air Force in the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War recounts the IAF offensive over Bangladesh, commencing with the raids on Dacca on the first day of the war and moving on to the final coup de grace delivered on the Governors House in Dacca. It aims to fill in the gaps regarding a military conflict that took place almost four decades ago. Eagles Over Bangladesh The Indian Air Force in the 1971 Liberation War P V S Jagan Mohan and Samir Chopra

    Nice book, not that great

    The book is very detailed and covers minute by minute action done by IAF during 1971 war. It really requires to get into it to read it completely. At many places, too much detail is very boring and really puts you off. There are no nice pictures also.

    A good historic log book

    this book is kind of a log book during the war days. gives the reader close to real figures of sorties and attacks carried out on a daily basis.readers can get an insight about the airfields, aircraft , tactics and not to mention the courage and guts of men who flew those missions, which are seldom glorified.

    A story of IAF Eagles over Bangladesh-1971

    From the day i came to know of this book,it was a must have.I ordered it the very same day from flipkart!

    The all-emcompassing story of the Operations of the IAF,over the then East Pakistan,and the major role it played in helping the Army and Navy win the Blitzkrieg war,is scintillating,action packed,humourous at times,yet captures the very essence and mettle of the men in blue,flying over and over Bangladesh.

    Very well written,with anecdotes of both Indian and Pakistani forces men..storie...
