Here is the first eye-witness story of the Kashmir Operations permitted by the Government of India to be published in book form.

Indian troops were rushed to defend the state, after the request of the Ruler to accede to the Indian Union was accepted by the Government of India. The Story of Poonch , which is the central theme of the book, gives a vivid picture of the conditions under which the whole campaign was fought.

In these stories and novellas he wrote for BLACK MASK and other pulp magazines of the 1920s and 1930s, Dashiell Hammett transformed the American detective story into something original -- a medium to explore the jarring textures and revved-up cadences of American life. As a chronicler of this underworld of criminality, he created the Continental Op, the nameless, stoic detective, jaded and fearless, who's cast in the role of protagonist of most of the stories in this volume.

The famous songwriter Cole Porter once asked, “What Is This Thing Called Love?” His question caused author Andrew J. Salat to wonder: is the condition physical, spiritual, or, as some cynics might describe, “a temporary madness of the heart”? Salat believes Mr. Porter’s question is answered quite well in Short Stories for Romantics. The story “High Heels” is a haunting tale of love found and lost, told to him by an interesting airline passenger. “Adrienne’s Room” takes the reader on an unforgettable roller-coaster ride. For a more spiritual journey, “High Level Meeting” seeks to bring on second thoughts about the way we live our lives. These sixteen stories take the reader on an imaginary sojourn we all must take in order to experience true love in our lives. “Mr. Salat is a gifted storyteller with imagination and eloquent style. His stories had me turning pages to the very last.” —Beverly DeGeorge, literary consultant
