India Pakistan War – 1971

The Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 was a military conflict between the arch rivals, India and Pakistan. It was a very short war which lasted just 13 days (3-16 December 1971).
Forces of both countries clashed on the Eastern and Western fronts. As an outcome of this war, East Pakistan seceded as the independent state of Bangla Desh. Both sides give their own exaggerated accounts of the War. An endeavour has been made here to give official versions of Pak Army, Indian Army and that of independent observers. After reading all versions, researchers may form their own untainted opinion. Images of the War are also included here.
