This is perhaps the world's first war book in which the author has not used the word `enemy' anywhere in the text and he has his own reasons for this. The two combatant countries India and Pakistan whose war events are subject matter of this work, should never be enemy of each other because they are not only the brothers but also the twins born at the same time and are inseparably linked by the geography of the sub-continent.
“Saul Diskin’s extraordinary memoir is rich with unique and wonderful intimacy—the intimacy of twinship. For me this made that closest of bonds come alive in a way no other book I’ve read has succeeded in doing. Diskin makes one feel like a twin, see the world through a twin’s eyes, suffer with him in a way that is at times almost unbearably close and poignant. One becomes immersed in the life and death struggle. The medical detail is wonderfully well-done, as are all the relationships. The peculiar and overwhelming nature of twinship is brought out in a way that’s both uncannily spirited and wholly down-to-earth; completely unsentimental. The reader participates at every point and on every page in an intimacy that he knows only death can end.” —JOHN BAYLEY, author of Elegy for Iris "...you have captured the essence of the twin relationship more eloquently than anyone else I have ever read." Nancy Segal, author of Entwined Lives, Indivisible by Two and Someone Else's Twin. “What is it like to lose your mirror-image, your other half, your secret sharer? The End of the Twins is an arresting memoir that evokes the mysteries of twinship and the irrevocability of loss.” —ERICA JONG, author of Fear of Flying and Becoming Light “A moving account of a unique bereavement from which we can all learn about love and loss.” —HAROLD S. KUSHNER, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People

In 1838 Hugo began a play entitled Les Jumeaux (The Twins), but halfway through the third act he relinquished it, and the drama remained unfinished. It was finally published in 1889, as a fragment, after his death. The MS. was broken off with the words, "Interrompu le 28 Aout par la maladie "; and the illness was no doubt that weakness of the eyes by which Hugo for several years was troubled.
Two teenagers about to become full-fledged Police Cadets rescue twins lost in a rainstorm and mudslides and perform other helpful deeds too.
