  1. This is a good collection of short stories set during, or shortly after, the 1971 Bangladesh liberation war The stories are all of a high quality, with some good ones and some very good ones I wouldn t describe any of them as bad, but as with any collection of short stories, a few didn t fully resonate with me I would recommend this eye opening, moving and rewarding book to anyone with an interest in 71.
