Lessons from the Past: 1965, 1971, and the Future of India’s Military Planning

The 1965 and 1971 India-Pakistan Wars stand in stark contrast to each other in their execution and outcomes. Both conflicts, and the changes between them, hold lessons for the formulation of national policy and war aims, and for the effects they had on the battlefield. To discuss these historical cases, and lesson for how India might plan and fight wars in the future, Brookings India is organizing a private roundtable with Arzan Tarapore.

Mr Tarapore is a PhD candidate in the War Studies Department at King’s College London. He previously served for 13 years in the Australian Department of Defence.

Participation in this event is by-invitation.
