It is said that a picture is worth a Thousand Words.  and nothing substitutes History or captures the mood of the moment more than pictures and photographs. The Indian Air Force has fought four wars and numerous actions. Yet  with any account of these wars You will find totally  non-relevant pictures anywhere.  More often than not,  you will come across in an account of war, pictures of aircraft and  people with no names. but hardly anything relevant to the moment. Of course from time to time You do come across some good wartime photographs, they are far and few between, The above links will take you to the best of these.
