Nehru’s Himalayan Blunders: The Accession of Jammu and Kashmir documents the major errors of Nehru, diplomatic and military, that led to India losing a portion of Jammu and Kashmir to Pakistan’s military occupation and to continued conflict between the two states even after the legal accession of Jammu and Kashmir.

Sardar Patel managed the accession of the remaining 500 states without a lingering dispute. Read about Nehru’s blunders in Jammu and Kashmir that led to a reference to the UN, and why Sardar Patel could not intervene to prevent the mis-handling. An enduring view into what actually happened, and Nehru’s culpability, will leave you stunned.
