On March 25, Pakistani armed forces began killing Bengalis indiscriminately. The savagery of this genocide prompted him to take up arms again to fight for the liberation of Bangladesh. He initially tried to join Major Shafiullah’s battalion. Finally, Colonel M.A.G. Osmani, the commander- in-chief of the Bangladesh
armed forces, made him Sector Commander of Sector 7. A Sector Commander Remembers recounts the memorable events on March 1971 when Sheikh Mujibur Rahman inspired all Bengalis to fight for liberation, the early months of the war when Nooruzzaman attempted to find a foothold to join the war, and the final months of the war when he took command of Sector 7.
In this frank account, Nooruzzaman describes the often ordinary people who performed heroic deeds as well as the young men who became guerillas, knowing full well the risks involved in fighting a professional army which had earlier demonstrated its ruthlessness against its own people. If he describes the failures of others, he does not hesitate to describe his own shortcomings. This volume is an important document of the Liberation War, told from the perspective of.one who actually fought in it.
