n March 1971, the military in East Pakistan launched the suicidal attack which was to lead, over nine long months, to the collapse of military strength and civil society in the region. As chief of Inter Services Public Relations and press advisor to both the president and chief martial law administrator, Abdul Rehman Siddiqi was in a position to observe and analyse the developing tragedy in both public and political circles. His account of this traumatic episode is refreshingly free from polemic, observant and candid.

For those, who have just started to explore this critical part of Pakistan's history and for those who want a well drafted narrative of how and when things happened - it should be a handy reference. A. R. Siddiqui was looking after PR & Media for Yahya's government and this book reflects the narrative in similar manner. It does mention the atrocities committed by Pakistan's armed forces in Bangladesh during their occupation and the instance military leadership adopted at that time. It also reflects, why power is not even the last resort in resolving the crises like these and why should all the stakeholders should be taken on board while formulating national narrative.
