Teach war history to students: Shiv Kunal Verma

New Delhi, Feb 9 (IANS) The new generation must be taught war history, says military historian Shiv Kunal Verma, whose new book on the 1962 Sino-Indian war has earned a good response from different quarters.

Verma, son of an army officer who was a captain with 2 Rajput in 1962, says he visited schools as part of the book promotion and found that students were keen to what happened in the war.

“We assume children are not interested in history. But when we visited schools, children were very enthusiastic about the book,” Verma told IANS.

“We must focus on making our children aware of the military history of the nation. We must build interest in school and college students about such things,” he said.

Verma’s book – “1962, The War That Wasn’t” — has been printed by Aleph Book Co. The publisher says it sold out within three weeks of hitting the shelves.
