DECEMBER IN DACCA: The Indian Armed Forces and the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War

The 1971 war is described as one of the last ‘just wars’ of the 20th century, in which the side representing good triumphed unequivocally, indisputably and decisively. Given the scale of atrocity that was halted in its tracks by that war, observers are mystified why the numerous anecdotes – poignant, heart-warming and indicative of a nobility of spirit with which the forces put all their might into helping a neighbour in need – which should have become part of India’s folklore and popular culture have failed to become iconic representations of Indian success. December in Dacca: The Indian Armed Forces and the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War by K.S. Nair seeks to right this wrong and to retell the story of the war while setting the context, offering some thoughts on why these stories are not better known, and how bringing them to light could help India regain her sense of self.
