Understanding the Sino-Indian War 1962 (English) (Hardcover)

Regarding the 1962 Sino-Indian war, Sultan Shahin had this to say: ‘What exactly did India lose? During the 30-day border conflict, in two phases over October and November, 1,383 Indian soldiers were killed, 1,696 went missing and 3,968 were captured.... Six months later, by May 25, all the captured Indians had been released. In the icy heights of Ladakh—called the western sector—where, even Nehru acknowledged in parliament later, “not a blade of grass grew,” India had to give up some 38,000 square kilometers of territory.
