This book deals with two significant issues: the peculiar and paradoxical question of why regular armies, better suited to fighting conventional high-intensity wars, adopt inappropriate measures when fighting guerilla wars; and the evolution of the Indian army?s counterinsurgency doctrine over the last decade. In addition, the book also includes the first detailed analysis of the trajectory of the army?s counterinsurgency doctrine, arguing that while it was consolidated only over the last decade, the essential elements of the doctrine may in fact be traced back to the army?s first confrontation with the Naga guerillas in the 1950s. It outlines the three essential elements that make up the Indian army?s counterinsurgency doctrine:
Rajagopalan argues that international circumstances ? particularly the need to counter conventional military threats from Pakistan and China ? led to a counterinsurgency doctrine that had a strong conventional war bias. This bias also conditioned the organisational culture of the Indian army.
