  • The Political and Military History of Tibet is virtually the first comprehensive Tibetan military history. Based on many historical and biographical sources, including eyewitness accounts of many veterans of Tibetans' war of resistance against the communist Chinese in 1950-59, as well as the author's own experience during his military service in Tibet, this volume elaborates the evolution of the Tibetan Army and various wars it fought with foreign forces throughout the Tibetan history. Besides military history, this volume covers Tibetan political history, especially Sino-Tibetan political intricacies and Tibetan internal political struggle during the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as detailed description of the XIV Dalai Lama's miraculous escape to India in 1959 on the eve of PLA's violent suppression. The author, Namgyal wangdue , is a retired army officer of the Special Fronteir Force (SFF), also known by Est. 22, based in Dehradun, India. He also served as an army officer in the traditional Tibetan army until 1959.
