The Kindle version could do with better editingFrom the perspective of military history this book provides a tiny crucial narrative concerning the surrender of Pakistani forces in 1971 It does not discuss the tools and the ways war materiel was handled any those which are related to the author's disagreement with Sam Maneckshaw The editing of the Kindle version of this book could have been better Some of the sections are abrupt while at least one appears to have a duplicate separated only by few pages Overall notwithstanding these minor blemishes this is a book that must be read by those with even the mildest of interests in history military or otherwise

Gen Jacob's role in War of 1971 is pivotal as regards to operations in the eastern command over his being Jew and rising so high in the hirachery of Indian army which otherwise has been a martial caste oriented army is commendable But to say the least I'm disappointed to my core reading this one It's of a cribbing volume than an effort worth counting as a military history memoir sort of thing The general from the start seems to have a singular mindset as to convince the reader that triumph of Indian arms in 1971 conflict solely was because of him he is specifically hitting out with all guns blazing at FM Manekshaw and Gen Aurora There is seldom any respite for other corps and army commanders who are mostly presented as incompetent boys too happy to flash the ribbons around but having no salt seriously at one point one starts wondering at the sanity of the author with due pardon and respects just because the theme seems to be three liner; I know it allThanks God I was thereImagine what could have happen if I wasnt there Otherwise hither n tether there are interesting facts n chronology of events but not I worth wasting the money
