Commanding The Tawang Heights: Assam Hill To Bum La

Tawang Sector: In our series, ‘Along The China Front: Commanding The Tawang Heights’, Part III, we resume our journey at Se La, onwards to Tawang and upwards to the LAC at the Tibet border in Arunachal Pradesh, to the Indian Army’s Assam Hill post, the Subedar Joginder Singh (Param Vir Chakra) Memorial and Bum La. The StratNews Global team of Amitabh P. Revi and Rohit Pandita documents the challenges India faces in terms of terrain and altitude in comparison to Chinese forces in the Tibetan plateau, the critical, strategic value of Tawang, the Chinese Communist Party’s fabricated claims on the region, false narratives, and the lessons from the past for the present and future.
