RE-FORGING THE DAMASCUS BLADE: PARTITION OF THE INDIAN ARMOURED CORPS, 1947
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of History.
2012 (English)In: THE INDIAN ARMY, 1939-47: EXPERIENCE AND DEVELOPMENT / [ed] Alan Jefferys and Patrick Rose, Ashgate, England: Ashgate, 2012, 1st, 244- p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The partition of India in August 1947 saw a unified Indian Army disembered and seperated into the armies of India and Pakistan. The task of dividing the army's regiments was accomplished in less than three months largely due to the  efforts of senior British and Indian officers and was made possible with the spirit of camaraderie and goodwill existing amongst all ranks. This chapter examines how this seemingly "impossible task" was achieved in one of its most respected fighting arms- the Indian cavalry or more appropriately its descendent the Indian Armoured Corps.
