Chinas India War Read & Download í 108 E's Liberation Army Finding an outside enemy against which everyone could unite was his best option Coincidentally India was emerging as the leader of the newly independent countries in Asia and Africa and the stakes were high for a war with India winning the war could mean China would 'dethrone' India and take over A border dispute with India and India's decision to grant asylum to the Dalal Lama after a f. This is an important book for those who were brought up on Neville Maxwell and Alastair Lamb s assertions that blamed India for the 1962 Conflict for claiming territory that didn t belong to it and then attempting to coerce China by force As the Author brings out the boundary between India and Tibet was never clearly demarcated Under such circumstances the geographic watershed principle holds true In addition Lintner uotes material which brings out a strong case in favour of India All those who were looking for a different take on the 1962 War will be disappointed as the Author covers that only as a part of one chapter What he tries to analyse is the genesis to the Conflict and the geo politics of the Region which will shape the future One reason why the Conflict occurred according to Lintner was because Mao had been shaken by the failure of his programmes and the turmoil that had occurred in China He felt shaken to the core especially as even loyalists like Zhou had uestioned his leadership He cleverly manoeuvred events so that people like Deng and Zhou were shown as hawks The sanctuary given to the Dalai Lama and the undemarcated border was a sufficient causes belli And of course his spies had told him that the India was unprepared for any conflict the Author rightfully expresses surprise how the Chinese fractured Intelligence set up proved superior to the the better organised Indian one And so it proved The War was a complete success Mao became firm in his position to enable him to purge many threats and cause further misery on his people The Author examines all the states on the Himalayan Watershed including Sikkim Bhutan Nepal and even Burma The Conflict remains alive and can be re engineered by China whenever it desires The Author s knowledge is evident though they lack any deep insights I have a grouse that he seems willing to refer to discredited writers to reinforce his argumentsOne example is Eric S Margolis whose book War at the Top of the World has long been discredited If the Author had avoided reference to peripheral writers he would perhaps have produced a authoritative account Nevertheless the book is recommended for the book shelf of all those interested in the India Chinese geo strategic scenario

Chinas India War Read & Download í 108 The first book to put the Sino Indian border dispute and the 1962 war into its rightful historical and geopolitical context China's India War examines how the 1962 war was about much than the borderChina was going through immense internal turmoil following the disastrous 'Great Leap Forward' and Mao Zedong the architect of the movement was looking to reassert his power over the Communist Party and the Peopl. Lintner s work is a panoramic sweep across time and space The book connects data from cartography context and culture to weave the narrative that spans 125 years starting from 1893 Having read this one would realize that 1962 is just one event in a long train of events along the 3000Km line One would understand the central role played by 1907 Anglo Russian treaty in shaping the Tibetian future and the dynamics at shimla conference But Lintner confuses capability with intent in some areas and then becomes speculative in predicting intents later While in 1962 China initiated the aggression he says China was making plans with infra readiness intelligence gathering prior to 1962 So her attack had nothing to do with Nehru But he does not say what intent drove China to attack India in 1962 Mere capability and data do not constitute intent So what was the intentHere he cites Mao s eroded image due to excess and failures during Great Leap forward To prop his image he initiated this attack But this lasted for only 20 days China did vacate the territory she gained in 1962 Nothing could have prevented her continued occupation at that point He agrees that no one has provided a credible reason for this But she retreated to 20 Km east from agreed upon border Why would a nation lose time money and people and just throw away the gains to humiliate a nation So what did Mao gain in 20 days that consolidated his position for next 15 years Clearly history is a set of events interpreted after they occur Lintner however proposes thought provoking alternatives His approach seems to be led by honesty and curiosity Lintner s work is scholarly and cogently written It is not often that one comes across a work which maintains flow even when the scene shifts across space and time Very few authors can paint details while balancing clarity with nuance esp in context of Assam and Anglo Burmese war Gen Sunderji s Operation Falcon 1987After reading this one can contrast situation in Indian eastern with her western flank Situation in west is of India s own making through events during her freedom struggle Lot of history and religion is packed in that context But on the east India s challenges are born of international intrigue created long back in the past A thought provoking book Stimulates curiosity and spirit of wonder
