In this book the author has attempted to recapture and frame the inspiring picture of an emotionally roused, righteously indignant India - to tell the great story of how the fateful twenty-two day war wrought a miracle on the Indian people. An insolent Pakistan - whose President claimed that one Pakistani is equal to three Indians - and a biased Western opinion whipped up a righteous indignation that stung our nation into unprecedented unity, inspired our armed forces to prodigies of valour and roused the civilian population to a unique war effort and rare acts of courage. The 22-day war galvanised the spirits of the Indian people, restored the nationís self-confidence and banished the defeatism that was beginning to grip the people.
