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.

Good book written after research on kargil heros

if someone is interested to know about the kinds of odds our real heroes faced during the kargil war and how did they overcome against those odds and saved our nation. this is the book which gives the sneak peek into their lives. after listening this book I feel that this war was won just by the courage of our soldiers only, nothing else. many of the times during listening the book, I was so emotionally overwhelmed, I couldn't stop my tears to flow.

Worth a listen!!

Tone and tenor of the author is the steal of this audio book. Albeit I expected a more detailed narration of our heros from Kargil war, whatever is included in this book hasn’t satiated my desire to know more and this book has provided me the impetus to read more on our Heroes!! Well done!!

Truly a tribute to our martyr

A good book. The storytelling is so nice that one often feels like accompanying the soldier on those chilly nights and watching everything happening in front of eyes. The narration by Kiran Multani is such a passionate that one can feel the pride she might be feeling while narrating this story. Salute to our martyr

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.
