Timo Schmitz: “An Overview of Tibetan History, Part 7: The Battle of Qamdo and the Sino-Indian War”

In my last article I took a look on the situation of Tibet and Qinghai between 1912 and 1959. In this article, I want to cover the situation of the Khampas in Sichuan between 1930 and 1959, as well as the Sino-Indian War over Ladakh and Tawang in 1962. At the same time, the conflict is put into an international context (the relations between India and the Soviet Union and the relations between China and the USA in the 1970s).
