A Talent for War: The Military Biography of Lt Gen Sagat Singh $37.00
by Faiz Hakim Date Added: Tuesday 15 September, 2015
A very fine biography about a very fine hard drinking, hard fighting general of the Indian Army who led from the front, literally. He was a self-taught man who had immense stamina and vigor and drove the men under him to action whenever there was a slowdown in operations specially during the 1971 war with Pakistan. He was innovative as he introduced heli-borne operations when the resources for such operations were few and prior experience was negligible. He took calculated risks and optimally bypassed fortified Pakistani defenses unless it was absolutely necessary to reduce them. An interesting fact that I came across in the book is that it clearly contradicts General Jacobs claim that only a few thousand troops were in the vicinity of Dhaka when the Pakistani Army surrendered. His own corp was hours away from engaging the Pakistanis in Dhaka if the Pakistani had not surrendered. It was also interesting to learn that he was also a good family man who took care of his spouse and his children. A credit to our Nation.
