The Indo-Pakistani War of 1947–1948, sometimes known as the First Kashmir War, was fought between India and Pakistan over the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir from 1947 to 1948. It was the first of four Indo-Pakistan Wars fought between the two newly independent nations. Pakistan precipitated the war a few weeks after independence by launching tribal lashkar (militia) from Waziristan, in an effort to capture Kashmir, the future of which hung in the balance.

WAR AND DIPLOMACY IN KASHMIR, 1947-48 By C. Dasgupta Sage. Almost everyone who has followed the history of Indian policy on Kashmir is intrigued by at least three questions. Why did India, which today has made a mantra of bilateralism, take the issue to the UN in 1948? Why did India not vacate Pakistan-sponsored aggression from all of Kashmir before accepting the UN Security Council's cease-fire call in 1949? And why did India not respond to Pakistan's invasion by taking the war into enemy territory, as it did later in 1965? LORDING OVER INDIA: Mountbatten.

Based on declassified documents, the book throws new light on the roles played by Mountbatten and the British service chiefs in the Kashmir war of 1947-48 and explains why India took the Kashmir issue to the UN, why it did not carry the war into Pakistan and why it accepted a ceasefire. Examining archival material that has not been looked at previously and attempting an important reassessment of Mountbatten′s role, the book highlights the fact that India′s first Governor-General was not a mere constitutional figurehead. The book shows that he used -- and abused -- this authority to ensure that the conflict in Kashmir did not escalate into a full-scale inter-dominion war.

A study of British policy in Kashmir must begin with an examination of the strategic interests of Britain in the subcontinent. The book explains the diplomatic background to the military developments of the time, tracing the evolution of British policy on Kashmir and its orchestration of the moves of western powers in the Security Council. The book provides details from the British archives about the secret understandings between Commanders-in-Chief of the rival armies to contain the conflict. It reveals, for instance, that India′s Commander-in-Chief, General Bucher, had tried as early as March 1948 to negotiate an informal truce with his counterpart in Pakistan, without the knowledge of the Indian government. A revealing study about a controversial incident in India′s military history, this is a timely book, especially in the post-Agra Summit period.

This book analyses:

The Evolution of British policy towards Kashmir

The role played by the western powers in the Security council

The secret attempt made by General Bucher to negotiate an informal truce with his counterpart in Pakistan

How Mountbatten used and abused his authority to ensure that the Kashmir issue did not escalate into a full-scale inter-domain war.
