Roar of the Tiger - Illustrated History of Operations in Kashmir by 4th Battalion The Kumaon Regiment in 1965 Indo Pak War

Ratings: (0)|Views: 944|Likes:
Today, the vicious battles fought between 4 Kumaon and Pak Army in Kashmir in 1965, are almost a forgotten saga of great chivalry by soldiers of both sides. In this book, these actions have been recounted in detail, including examples of incredible bravery displayed by the combatants.
It was indeed traumatic for the troops when areas that had been captured by the unit in Bugina Bulge (POK), after incredible sufferings and heavy casualties, were returned to Pakistan. Our troops withdrew to the areas where they are located today. The heart-breaking orders to withdraw were dutifully followed despite our genuine claims to the captured areas. Similar withdrawals were also conducted in strategic areas of Hajipir Pass and Kargil Heights.Today, terrorists regularly infiltrate from Pakistan to India from these areas.

About the Author
Brig (Retd) Jasbir Singh, SM, took premature retirement in 2004, after serving in the Army for 34 years. He took part in India-Pakistan War, 1971, counter-insurgency operations against hostiles in Nagaland, operations against LTTE in Srilanka and counter-terrorist operations on either side of Pir Panjal Range in J&K. Jasbir has served as Instructor, at IMA (Dehradun), with Govt of Botswana (Southern Africa) & at Defence Services Staff College, Wellington (Nilgiris). He has served in Directorate General of Military Operations (DGMO), Army HQ, New Delhi and has been Security Advisor of Kingdom of Lesotho (Southern Africa), from 2000 to 2003. Jasbir was wounded during operations behind enemy lines in East Pakistan (1971 War) and twice decorated for gallantry during operations. He now leads a retired life in the hills of Ranikhet (Uttarakhand) and spends his time writing on military subjects and painting. He has published two books ('Combat Diary', 'Escape from Singapore') and numerous articles.
When not in Ranikhet, Jasbir can be found at his Farm, in the foothills of Himalayas in Uttarakhand. Here, he does farming and takes time to indulge in favourite pastimes of writing and painting.
