The campaign for the liberation of Bangladesh was short and swift, spread over some thirteen campaign days, conducted in riverine terrain highly suitable for defense.

The author describes events leading to the creation of Bangladesh, beginning with Pakistan Army's crackdown in East Pakistan on March 26, 1971, to the outbreak of full scale war following the Pakistani bombing of Indian airfields in the west on the evening of December 3, 1971 and the subsequent military operations leading to the surrender of Pakistan Eastern Command.

Outlining the evolution of the strategy for campaign, he details the selection of thrust lines using subsidiary dirt tracks that bypassed centres of resistance and opened up axes of maintenance later. The objectives selected were communication centres in relation to the geopolitical heart - Dacca. A concise account of the execution of the campaign is given.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Tuesday 14 December, 2010.
