“Provocative, controversial and though one may not agree with Ravi Rihkye’s statistics and prognosis, the book makes for compulsive reading and professional analysis.”
— Lt Gen Kamal Davar (retd)
President, Delhi Forum For Strategic Studies
“Ravi Rikhye occupies a unique place among analysts of India’s defence issues as a nuts and bolts man without compare. His orders of battle and scenarios are both educative and entertaining. His message in this important book is unsettling, but not heeding it is not an option.”
— Dr Manoj Joshi
Distinguished Fellow, Observer Research Foundation
“As co-author of the seminal book Fiza’ya: Psyche of the Pakistan Air Force, I remain aware of Ravi Rikhye’s prodigal mind on matters military. His vast knowledge, acute analysis and tantalising projections make his works truly unique.”
— Pushpindar Singh Chopra
President, The Society for Aerospace Studies
FACE OFF! is a detailed narration by Ravi Rikhye on India’s capability of fighting a two-front war, for which its armed forces have planned and prepared for long. This unique book systematically covers the military challenges rising from geopolitical evolution. The ground forces of China and Pakistan against whom India is primed, are covered in detail as are air and naval forces to provide readers in-depth knowledge with comparisons given and conclusions arrived at. The crucial question asked is: Can India take on both Pakistan and China at the same time?
This book will be essential reading and an invaluable resource for policymakers, strategists, students of South Asian matters, diplomats, and the general public as well.
