Reviews the development of the independent Indian Air Force, analyzing its role in the series of conflicts that India has been engaged in since its independence, and discussing some of the doctrinal issues that these conflicts have illuminated.
  • The contents of this book represent a slur on its title. It does not accurately address either the current state of the IAF or its future and bases too much of its historical analysis on Fiza'ya: Psyche of the Pakistan Air Force.
    There are too many sound-bytes from magazines and the whole book lacks analysis. Also, there is a danger of phrases and comments being taken out of context, especially from retired officers. Like an earlier reviewer, I question the competence of the authors to write this book.
    When the entire IAF air defence network is dismissed in a couple of lines, the SAM squadrons hardly touched on and the ORBAT and personnel strengths are incorrect, the book can hardly be called accurate.
    As per the high attrition rate of the IAF, the IAF does not, nor has it ever had, the highest attrition rate in the world - as claimed by another reviewer. The book fails to adequately address either the training system of the IAF or the attrition problem. If the intention of the book was to highlight these issues, then it should have been entitled 'High Attrition in the IAF' or something like that.
    The real danger of this book lies in the fact that readers who are not students of Indian Air Power ( and here I draw a distinction between these and those simply interested in the IAF ) will believe the nonsense and inaccuracies that abound in this truly disappointing work.
    Having said all of this, I must confess to being at an advantage over most readers since I have had the opportunity to independently verify 'facts' claimed by the authors by looking at all the sources they used and by interviewing the very people that were quoted by the authors. As such, I know that much of what was written was inaccurate.

  • It appears the authors have two bias -- anti-hard work and anti-analysis. I wonder if they actually got to visit any of the bases or talk to any real pilots. Based on the book, one could get the impression that in a war the IAF could be neutralized simply by waiting until they run out of spares! China/Pakistan -- take heed!

  • Topics such as these should only be written by authors with an unbiased outlook. Otherwise, the authors and the book loses credibility, as in this case. Also poorly written.
