Both India and Pakistan inherited a core of professional, highly trained armed forces after independence in 1947. Territorial disputes between the two countries, together with the proximity of China and the Soviet Union, ensured the continuing independent growth of their armed strength and the development of specialist airborne and commando units. With photographs and full colour illustrations, this book details the arms, equipment, organization and uniforms of these elite troops of the sub-continent.
