`Major Chadha`s research is exhaustive, extensive and in-depth reading through this book was a learning experience' - Lt Gen (Retd) V K Sood Former Vice-Chief of Army Staff and Consulting Editor Force

`Remarkable both for its scholarly rigour and precision of research, Major Chadha`s book is innovative both in its analysis and in terms of description, nuances and prognosis' - Air Vice-Marshal (Retd) Kapil Kak

This book is the first history of Low Intensity Conflict (LIC) in India since independence. It analyzes the roots of conflict in a range of contexts. In the author's view, India's struggle for independence itself rates as the 20th century's most significant LIC. Subsequent conflicts have made India possibly the world's most complex and varied theatre of LICs.

Lt Col Vivek Chadha is presently at Army Headquarters, New Delhi.
