Himalayan Eagle: The story of the Indian Air Force Rs.995.00/-


Himalayan Eagle takes the reader on what is a fascinating journey with the Indian Air Force, from its inception, through its growth into a force to be reckoned with, and on to its place on the international scene. The dogfights are alive with realism and the air attacks on ground installations have great visual impact. But more than a history of aerial warfare, this is the story of the evolution over 100 years of the Indian Air Force. The story is compelling because with the telling of it the reader comes to realise the supply, training and logistical problems the airmen, and later airwomen, overcame.

Far from being boring, "history bookish", dry or wearisome, it is a chronologically well documented, engaging narrative on the formation of the Indian Air Force.

About Author

Born in India in 1940, educated at a British oil company school in Iran and then at high school in India, the author was unable, due to parental objection, to continue a career in the Indian Air Force, for which he retained a life-long admiration.

Working in an industrial organization, he wrote a humourous play for his company’s social club which won him some acclaim, and then won a State award for his paper on Industrial Relations. He gained some flying experience in gliders to satisfy his love of flying.

Migrating to Australia in 1973, he soon involved himself in rebuttals of anti-Indian bias in local defence magazines such as the Pacific Defence Reporter, and international news magazines like Asiaweek and Far Eastern Economic Review and others, most of which were published.

He decided to research, collate and organize in a chronological sequence all the available relevant data on the Indian Air Force and present the narrative in an ‘easy-to-read’ format. This book is the result.

He is married, with two children and five grandchildren.
