Ayesha Majid writes a loving tribute to her grandfather in Surviving Father of Pakistan Army Aviation. Her grandfather is Brigadier Mokhtar Karim. Karim had the honor of serving in the British Indian military before the division of India and Pakistan. After the British left India, it divided the land into India along with Pakistan—at that point composed of East and West. This book is the exciting story of Karim’s long military service. You will see the names of many of the most important military events in Pakistan’s history as well as the Indian military leaders. Ayesha explains how her grandfather knew and worked with leaders both in Pakistan and India. This book gives an insider’s look at the events leading up to the partition and occurring after the partition of India into Pakistan and India. It also covers the division of East from West Pakistan, creating Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Ayesha Majid has written a page-turner in Surviving Father of Pakistan Army Aviation. She has a unique style of writing that shows her love and respect for her grandfather, Brigadier Mokhtar Karim. He was a leader in the development of Pakistani military aviation and a pioneer in the region’s hot air ballooning. She uses quotations from both the brigadier and other officers who knew him well. She shares much history and gives insight into a part of the world that most of us know little about. While some of the wording is unfamiliar to Americans, it is easy to understand. This is not only a loving tribute to Ayesha’s grandfather, but it is also full of military information written in a way that encourages the reader to want to read further.
