Different perspectives of the 1971 war Hey there guys, Started this thread so that the different perspectives of the 1971 war could be discussed here. We can discuss about the people, the skirmishes, the tactics associated with the war and what each side learnt from it. I would request everybody not to give nationalistic rantings and try to keep the discussion civilized and as neutral as possible. I am myself going to start this by posting two opinions. One about the great Field Marshal Manekshaw by a Pakistani officer Second about the little known General J F R Jacob. This one written by a Jewish Reporter.
