NEW DELHI: He has two books on India’s military history to his credit but Air Vice Marshal Arjun Subramaniam (Retd) says writing his second book titled ‘Full Spectrum: India’s Wars, 1972-2020′ was tough. “Writing about war and conflict when you have lived through it and when you have engaged with people you are writing about makes it a challenging proposition,” he told StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale. The book chronicles the changing spectre of war, from high-altitude warfare (Operation Meghdoot), conflict in an urban setting (Operation Blue Star) to the Indian Peace Keeping Mission in Sri Lanka. War/conflict brings out the noblest of human emotions, it also brings out the worst, he said. Balancing the two while writing about contemporary military history is a big ask, he admitted.
