Publisher's Summary

Why does a group of stranded paratroopers call for Bofors' fire upon its own position?
Why is an old man in Palampur fighting for justice for his dead soldier son?
What makes a martyr's father visit a young Kashmiri girl every year?

Kargil: Untold Stories from the War takes you into the treacherous mountains where some of the Indian Army's bloodiest battles were fought. Interviewing war survivors and martyrs' families, Rachna Bisht Rawat tells stories of extraordinary human courage, of not just men in uniform but also those who loved them the most. With its gritty stories of incomparable bravery, Kargil: Untold Stories from the War is a tribute to the 527 young braves who gave up their lives for us - and the many who were ready to do it, too.

Gripping and very lively

The ability to vividly paint the picture with words is amazingly done by the author. I almost felt as if I reached the war zone through her words.
Ultimately I always believe that a good director and performer makes or breaks a good audible book.
kudos to both of them.

Jo shahid hue hain unki, Jara yaad karo qurbaani

It's a wonderfully written book and exceptionally delivered by the narrator with emotions that would give you goose bumps. You'll often find yourself reaching out to your moist eyes.
