Publisher's Summary

The definitive account of the 1999 Kargil war - the strategy, the effects, the heroism - from the man in charge.

In February 1999, Pakistani Army personnel, disguised as jehadi militants, infiltrated mountainous Kargil and occupied key vantage points. Their intrusion triggered off a limited war between the world's newest nuclear states. It was a bitter battle, and one that throws up important lessons for India's defence preparedness, as also its responses to flare-ups such as this. This book is also a reminder of the unparalleled heroism that was on display during those grim weeks, heroism that has become a benchmark for bravery.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Very Informative

The general doesnt mince words. He provides a wholesome picture of the Kargil war and events surrounding it. Certain military terms were mispronounced.

An important book

This is a book every Indian needs to listen/read. Various aspects of the Kargil war has been presented in depth. The only issue is they could have worked on some background music, added real sound bites etc to just make the reading more lively!
