Untold story : 1946 naval mutiny : last war of independence by G. D Sharma( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of books have been written on the 1946 Royal Indian Navy Mutiny but the true story of this historic event remains untold with few facts deliberately suppressed. The Inquiry Commission report gave graphic details of mutinous acts at all the naval stations but it awarded no punishment to the guilty. It glossed over the bad conditions of service leading to the mutiny. It recommended no action against naval administration although bad service conditions were stated to be the root cause of mutiny in the Navy. It was an irony of British Naval Justice that the men voicing these bad service

For the honour of India : a history of Indian peacekeeping by Satish Nambiar( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deriving its title from the motto chosen for independent India's first UN peacekeeping operation, the Custodian Force in Korea, 1953-54, the book covers the entire gamut of Indian peacekeeping experiences around the globe. Since Independence in 1947, about 100,000 Indian personnel have served in 43 such operations including all operations undertaken in Africa. The fact that, as of 31 March 2009, 130 Indian peacekeepers have given their lives in UN peacekeeping operations alone, underlines more than anything else, India's commitment to the primary objective of the UN Charter to 'maintain international peace and security'. This book provides a comprehensive insight into the history of India's involvement with peacekeeping operations from its tentative beginnings in Korea in 1950, through the non-aligned phase of Indian foreign policy in Indo-China and Gaza, to the heavy employment of the post-Cold War period. Apart from regular UN peacekeeping operations, missions such as the Indian Custodian Force in Korea which functioned under the Neutral Nations Repatriation Commission, of which India was Chairman; and the International Commissions of Supervision and Control in Indo-China are also covered, as is the employment of Indian military observers and staff officers, and civilian police agencies on UN peacekeeping missions
