In all of the Pakistan’s history, the war of 1965 has no equal. it is considered to be a conclusive victory over the arch enemy, India. it is commemorated with a holiday of its own.
o doubt, the 17 day war filled the entire nation with great spirit and valor. a number of patriotic songs were created during the war that remain the staple of every military related event ever since.
war is an ugly business, there are secrets that the governments keep even from their own people. to this day, there are still doubts in several prominent minds about who won the war. although both Pakistan and India claim victory, the international opinion tilts more toward a stalemate that was actually in the favor of Pakistan. it was felt that if the war had continued for another few days, Pakistan would have lost the conflict.
Following pictures offer a few glimpses of those fateful days. all images remain the property of their respective owners.
