    17 must-see photos from 1965 war

    Most neutral historians agree that the 1965 India-Pakistan war ended in a stalemate; yet, both countries today claim to have delivered a crushing defeat on the other side.
    And while the debate over who won the war is likely to never be settled, we can agree that we owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers who gave their lives protecting our borders.
    Here, we look back at the some of the most intriguing pictures from the war that lasted almost 17 days.
