Publisher's Summary

Terrorism has affected several of India's states at different times and in different forms and continues to be a matter of national and increasingly international concern. One of the states most affected by terrorism was Punjab, which was torn apart by acts of violence during the 1980s, while its people were caught in the crossfire between the threats of the terrorists and the Indian government's attempts to combat them. The Golden Temple in Amritsar was the scene of two pivotal anti-terrorist operations during this decade - Operation Blue Star in 1984 followed by Operation Black Thunder in 1988, when the Indian government dislodged terrorists who had occupied this holiest of Sikh places of worship. The consequences of Operation Blue Star included the assassination of Indira Gandh, the prime minister who sanctioned the operation. The success of Operation Black Thunder, on the other hand, was a turning point in the battle against terrorism. 

Centred around a gripping account of Operation Black Thunder, by one who initiated it and was intimately involved in executing it, this absorbing book analyses the factors responsible for the rise and growth of terrorism in Punjab, including the role of Pakistan in promoting terrorism in India.

Weak narration

Narration could have been better. Pronunciation was below par of names of places. Incident is etched in history wish book could reflect it little better.

Not as I expected

I thought you would focus more on rather how the attack took place. But rather it is more focused on dirty politics.

Good story, but not told properly.

It's is a good story but the author has not organized it correctly and it starts and ends abruptly.
