In this episode, we interview amateur IAF historian and author KS Sreekumar Nair. "Sree" wrote "The Forgotten Few: The Indian Air Force's Contribution in the Second World War" which was published by Harper Collins in 2019, and has just recently released "December In Dacca: The Indian Armed Forces and the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War". We talk about the history of military aviation in the Indian sub-continent, Indians flying in the RFC and RAF, the first officers and men selected for the Indian Air Force, and the fledgling IAF's stellar contributions during World War 2, especially in the India-Burma-China theatre.You can buy his books here:Forgotten Few: https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07TM9L9QS/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i1December in Dacca: https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B09ML2WH68/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0
