Shadow War is a brief primer on Kashmir conflict and the interrelated links between the ISI and various jihadi groups waging jihad throughout the Kashmir region, but I can't help but feeling that something is missing. The story revolves around Pakistan with far few mentions of India. Further I was a little disappointed, the book really picks up in the second half when discussing the interplay between the ISI, Musharaff, and jihadi groups, but at points it feels like an exercise in alphabet soup keeping the names of the jihadi groups straight and the leaders and defections, I felt like many sections could've been fleshed out deeper than basic factual surface information, but that would've made the book longer, taking away its' brevity. Good for a start on the Kashmir problem, but for depth look elsewhere.

Format: Hardcover
The book will not find any things surprising for people from India as India has been a victim of a proxy war. Though India has its share of misadventure in the past in the same area, its the scale which Pakistan is still conducting is the thing to worry about. The recent Haqanni network-Admiral Mullen disucssion has sparked the debate. If the world needs peace in long run this network has not to be stopped but crushed. There is a new axis of evil in town, but its the people of Pakistan to decide what they want.
In this book the details of General Zia and discussion around Kargil is interesting. Musharraf did try the misadventure in 1999 but the full scale war was avoided.
Do read this to know how it all started.
