First-hand, untold, action stories from the war zone
LIBERATION: 1971 is a collection of first-hand accounts by soldiers who fought in the War of Liberation. Published for the first time, and narrated with disarming candour and honest, the book highlights the achievements of the Indian Armed Forces and the Mukti Bahini, as well as the heroic sacrifices of the citizens of East Pakistan that together brought an end to the tyranny and genocide of the Pakistan establishment and gave birth to a new nation: Bangladesh. How can any nation not be proud of soldiers such as these? Their saga of courage, valour, suffering and pain must never be forgotten, if we are to preserve our freedom and our way of life. A compelling read for young and old alike.
