WARRIORS - 50 YEARS of the PAKISTAN AIR FORCE 1947-1997
Pakistan Air Force is the battle-seasoned air shield of our homeland.
When only a few weeks old, it took to the air in the winter of 1947 to
support the deprived and betrayed Kashmiri people. In the tumultuous
decades that followed, the PAF matured rapidly and fought in three
other wars to frustrate aggression across the nation's frontiers.
Trained to fight outnumbered from its infancy, the PAF has always
demanded the very best from its men, and they have often exceeded
their very stringent obligations. Their high professionalism and
commitment have brought them many successes in the conflicts of 1965,
1971 and the 1979-88 Afghan war.
The reproductions in this book reflect important glimpses of the PAF
as it blazed a trail of courage and honour over the last fifty years.
The paintings are the original work of Group Captain S M A Hussaini,
the much-admired Official Artist of the PAF.
On the occasion of the golden anniversary of the PAF the publication
of this book shall, we are sure, make it a collectors' item for all
