yup, thats definetly a biased article alright
Its only an estimate made by counting the field dressings found at the battlesite. There is no correct figure till the PLA de-classifies their records.

Just curious... info


"The original estimate is based on various data including the number of field dressings found on the battlefield by the Indian Red Cross who came the following spring to recover their dead."

Why did they leave the field dressing out? What did the field dressing include? Cloth? Pants? Bandages?

If you have seen a shell dressing you would'nt ask that question.
However, the shell dressing covers recovered were in very large numbers. Some thought that over 1000 cas had occured, but that would be silly. The 600 hundred figure is a rough estimate, it would include both dead and wounded.

I know I have seen those reports too, as I was trying to hunt for real figures as reported in the media. But those figures are not true, Indian troops suffered much more casualities on the eastern sector.
There is a difference in the terrain of the eastern and estern sector. If you see the link below of the terrain of Chushul sector (west) then you will see the open clear fields of fire, any attacker would have to take those many casualities.

which is why you dont go frontal on hills, jeez... needless to explain

flanking, encirclement, or anything logically sound in attacking... well i guess thats what added to india's defeat
