The Blood Telegram: India’s Secret War in East Pakistan by Gary J. Bass

Tk. 1,400.00

Drawing on unheard White House tapes, recently declassified documents, and investigative reporting, Gary Bass uncovers an astonishing story of superpower brinkmanship, war, scandal, and conscience. This is the definitive account of the build-up to the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War and the birth of Bangladesh. In the midst of this Cold War cataclysm, the Bangladeshis became collateral damage, victims of power games played by Nixon, Kissinger, Yahya Khan and even Indira Gandhi. Revelatory, authoritative and compulsively readable, The Blood Telegram is a thrilling chronicle of a pivotal chapter in South Asian history.
