Chaity Das moves away from India- and Pakistan-centric descriptions of the War of Liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, focusing on the men and women who suffered in the war. She examines and analyses war memoirs and testimonials, and untapped fictional and non-fictional accounts. In her depiction of the deeply gendered universe of war, the obscure borders between perpetrators and victims become visible. By analysing the works of Akhtaruzzaman Elias, Tahmima Anam, Intizar Husain, Kamila Shamsie, and Sorayya Khan, Das reveals the traumas of the past lying unburied under the nationalistic histories of victory and loss. PRINTED PAGES: 360.
