This work aims to focus primarily on the operations undertaken in the general area bound by Rajouri in the South to Haji Pir Pass in the North to Jhelum River in the West to mighty Pir Panjal in the East with its centre around Poonch. In the present context, the geographical segment being addressed actually covers the whole of Poonch District with a spill over into Northern part of Rajouri District and some areas now under illegal occupation of Pakistan (PoJK or Pakistan illegally occupied J&K). In order to keep readers in sync with the events happening in other sectors of the erstwhile Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) State, suitable mentions have been made without digging too deep into such actions. Within the Jammu region, details of the events surrounding Naushera-Jhangar, Kathua-Samba and even Jammu have been mentioned in passing so as not to lose the focus or widen the scope. Similarly, brief references have been made of the events happening North of Pir Panjal Range.
