review description
Ranji Rai and Joseph Chacko’s book,Warring Navies, is a welcome addition to the scant coverage of the naval history of South Asia.The authors area retired Indian navy commodore and a defense journalist, respectively, and the book draws heavily on Commodore Rai’s experiences in the navy. The book itself crosses the boundaries between memoirs and popular history, covering the history of the Indian navy’s operations from independence through theend of the Cold War.
