Even the author's description of the history of the war in is pathetic and also having poor statistics. On the contrary Sam Manekshaw's "Pakistan cut to size" is all the way more pleasing, transparent with clear statistics as well as pleasantly readable. In the whole Bengal, after every few kilometers there is a stream or a large river.
The writer gives example of traveling from Dhaka to Jaisoor in order to clear the traveling difficulties they faced. According to him, for going Jaisoor from Dhaka, first they had to travel through train or by road till Nrain-Ganj, from Nrain-Ganj to Khilna in the steamer and from there to Jaisoor in the train again.
So, this 75 miles journey from Dhaka to Jaisoor is completed in two days and by using three modes of transportation.
Mukti Bahani Mukti Bahani was actually the aggregate of those persons who started the Liberation war of Bangladesh. And the 50, of Indian Army soldiers were also mixed with them to give strength to their struggle. These people were kept in different categories according to education, skills and trainings. They had full gaudiness of Indian army. Mukti Bahini started taking position around the East Pakistan and they had full support from the Indian Army.
The Indian army had made more than 59 camps near the border to train the Bengali peoples. The circles shows the deployment of Mukti Bahini around the border. The East Pakistan Civil Armed Forces On his appointment, the strategy adopted by Niazi the author was different than that of General Tika, Niazi ordered that instead of securing only the surroundings of the camps we would attack the resisting elements and push them in India.
The strategy succeeded and they successfully completed the mission. But these civil armed forces had lack of modern weapons; despite this they did many successful operations against Mukti Bahani. War Plan The first task which was given to Niazi was that all the traitors should be removed or disarmed to safe East Pakistan.
He had a desire to attack on India so that to destroy the training camp and also to create problem for India to handle the migrated people from the attacked areas. But GHQ did not want to start an open war with India.
Due to shortage of heavy weapons, air force and navy and number of soldiers it was not possible for the army only to safeguard the East Pakistan. Because, the military had to fight with the annoyed public, Mukti Bahini and the expected Indian attack so the plan that made was that the Line of Control check points would be the responsibility of the Mujahedeen and Rangers. And the large part of Pak Army will be deployed in the strong forts etc.
The important roads had to be covered by the army and the civil armed forces. All that plan was made by keeping in the view the order from the High Command that no area should be given to India and to Mukti Bahini to declare it Bangladesh.
East Pakistani Army was fighting against the militants from the 8 months and now the India had started raising its pressure on the border.
Due to large difference between the two parts of the country, it was not possible to provide help to each other during the war days at large scale and it was also not possible for the country to maintain equal army on the both sides because due to large Indian army, the Pakistan army cannot fight with the Indian army in the front war.
So, a new strategy was introduced, the fight of East Pakistan will be fought in the west. In simple words if India will attack on East Pakistan, than the West part will enter into fight to force India to stop his war against the Eastern part. This was the strategy which the Pakistan Army planned to perform during any such situation and that was the reason which was not allowing GHQ to give more troops to Niazi to fight with the resisting elements and also to reduce the raising pressure of India at borders.
Eid day and the Attack of Indian Army The intelligence has given the reports that Indian will attack on the Eid day which was on 21 November The Indian army attacked East Pakistan in the night between the 20 and 21 of November. According to the writer, many other writers have misplaced the actual date of starting of war.
They start the war from the date of 3 December when West Pakistan air force attacked on many Indian air fields. According to the writer, we were fighting with the Indian Army from the March of but on the night between 20 and 21st of November the Indian army attacked East Pakistan with complete strength. Pakistani Air force attack of 3rd December The India had attacked East Pakistan on 21st November but Western Pakistan did not take it to UN and even did not tell his friends about the situation, India was showing that attack as small border skirmish.
On the 3rd of December the Western Command ordered air force to attack on many air fields of India without telling the Eastern Command which was already in critical situation against the militants and Indian army. Indian prime minister given her speech and declared the Pakistan air force attack as an open war. So, the fight which was Pakistan fighting from many months was not become a full scale open war and it was all due to the mistake of the Western Command.
Due to this attack, the message had been given to other countries that it was the Pakistan who had started the war. And also this attack gives India free hand to attack on East Pakistan with full power of air force and navy which was not doing too much before it. Because Eastern part did not have much air power to stop Indian from using their air force and also the navy was not able to resist against the grand navy of India.
So, now the Eastern Pakistan was completed cordon off by the Indian army. Then the Eastern Pak Army had been given another mission by the Western Command, which was that the Eastern Pak Army will have to keep Indian army busy in the eastern front so that they cannot move toward the western part.
So, that the western Pak army will be in better position to attack on India from the western front and they will try to get as many area of India as possible so that after the war they will be in better position to negotiate that captured land with the captured land by India in the East Pakistan. The writer than describes that it was a difficult task for him and for his army because they were fighting from the last 8 months and without much strength.
Area vise Battles General Niazi the writer of the book has explained the fights of many big cities in detailed and a large part of the book is devoted for these tales.

Subsequently, he was placed in solitary confinement for sometime, though he was later released. Bhutto discharged Niazi after stripping him of his military rank, the pension usually accorded to retired soldiers, and his military decorations. He was also denied his military pension and medical benefits, though he lodged a strong complaint against the revoking of his pension.
Niazi remained active in national politics in s and supported the ultraconservative agenda on a conservative Pakistan National Alliance platform against the Pakistan Peoples Party. Martial law was enforced and Niazi sought retirement from politics. The Commission opined that Niazi supervised the betel leaf and imported paan using an official aircraft, from East Pakistan to Pakistan. The Commission indicted him for corruption and moral turpitude while noting his bullying of junior officers who opposec his orders.
Farman Ali , Admiral S. Ahsan , Lieutenant-General Yakob Ali , and the military establishment. The Commission partially accepted his claims by critically noting that General Niazi was a Supreme Commander of the Eastern Command, and that he was responsible for everything that happened in the East. The Commission recommended a court-martial be held by the Judge Advocate General that would indite Niazi for serious breaches of military discipline and the military code.
Niazi did not accepted the Commission's inquiries and fact-findings, believing that the Commission had no understanding of military matters. In , he authored a book, The Betrayal of East Pakistan , which was a record of the events that led to 16 December He was buried in a Military Graveyard in Lahore. Political commentators described Niazi's legacy as a mixture of the foolhardy, and the ruthless. Ahmed, he had even hatched a far-fetched plan to "cross into India and march up the Ganges and capture Delhi and thus link up with Pakistan.
This he called the "Niazi corridor theory" explaining: "It was a corridor that the Quaid-e-Azam demanded and I will obtain it by force of arms". We would cripple the economy of Calcutta by blowing up bridges and sinking boats and ships in Hooghly River and create panic amongst the civilians.
One air raid on Calcutta would set a sea of humanity in motion to get out of Calcutta". A journalist from the Dawn newspaper had observed him thus: When I last met him on 30 September , at his force headquarters in Kurmitola , he was full of beans.
From the mass of evidence coming before the War Enquiry Commission from witnesses, both civil and military, there is little doubt that Niazi came to acquire a bad reputation in sex matters, and this reputation has been consistent during his postings in Sialkot, Lahore and East Pakistan. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article contains weasel words : vague phrasing that often accompanies biased or unverifiable information.
Towards the end of his life,he also wrote this book to present his side of the story. He was the last general to be posted to Dacca. Before him Lt. Yakub Khan,sensing the gravity of the situation,had bailed out.
The decision paid off handsomely for Yakub,he didn't get any blame. Niazi resents that all the blame was laid at his door and Yakub Khan got away scot free. Before Niazi's arrival,General Tikka Khan had already launched Operation Searchlight,and the disturbances had intensified.
General and send him to East Pakistan. As Niazi put it bitterly,"they needed a mujahid to hang the noose around his neck and I am that mujahid. But one also has to consider the hopeless situation in which he was placed. Add to that a hostile local population and rebelling Bengali troops. There was no international support and back in Pakistan,President Yahya Khan was preoccupied with his drinking and his women,leaving Eastern Command to fend for itself.
There was a sense of inevitability to the East Pakistan debacle. I read this book many years ago,I haven't found it since,or on the internet.

He only talks about how he was clean, and how and why Bhutto and Yahya had already planned to divorce East Pakistan without any successor Government. He investigates the dialectical relationship between war and state in the subcontinent and links up with the current debates in international military history. Unknown Binding.
