Summary

On 5th June 1984, the Indian army began its attack on the complex at Amritsar, which houses the two most sacred shrines. Generals who had pledged to use minimum force and on no account to violate the shrines were not prepared for the fierce and adept resistance they encountered. Having suffered severe casualties, the infantry were driven back, and as a last resort - with approval from Delhi - tanks were ordered in. The Akal Takht was virtually reduced to rubble. It is doubtful if Mrs Gandhi would have initiated Operation Blue Star had she known how bloody and devastating the consequences of that 24-hour conflict would be.

Good book_ Terrible narration

Book is awesome. Amongst very few on Indian politics. It gives a good chronological order of the events. But the narration is disappointing. Especially the enacting effort Indian accent is terrible. It's unfair to use such accent.
