Any reference to the 1947-48 conflict invariably takes our minds to Kashmir. Kashmir’s significance remaining undisputed, there were other areas that saw some of the most intense battlefield engagements on the ground as also some of the most arguable decisions that were taken at the highest levels. Kishanganga Valley (KG), which covers a huge span right from the North of Sonamarg and all the way to the confluence of the river by the same name with Jhelum at Domel, had actually fallen to the enemy without anyone really knowing about it. However, by the time the whole of the Kashmir Valley, per se, was liberated towards the middle of November 1947, the enemy had already fortified his positions in the KG Valley. The following spring saw the beginning of a long, tiresome slog by our soldiers who had to fight a well-entrenched enemy and some really harsh weather in an unforgiving terrain. This book is a wholesome record of those gallant actions that have, more or less,  faded away from public memory.
