Publisher's Summary

Twenty-one riveting stories from the battlefield about how India's highest military honor was won

The Brave takes you to the hearts and minds of India's bravest soldiers, all of whom won the Param Vir Chakra, India's greatest military honor. With access to the Army, families, and comrades-in-arms of the soldiers, Rachna Bisht Rawat paints the most vivid portrait of these men and their extraordinary deeds.

How hard is it to fight at 20,000 feet in sub-zero temperatures? Why did Captain Vikram Batra say, "Yeh dil maange more"? How do wives and girlfriends of soldiers who don't return cope? What happens when the enemy is someone that you have trained? How did the Charlie Company push back the marauding Chinese? How did a villager from Uttar Pradesh become a specialist in destroying tanks?

Both gripping and inspiring, The Brave is the ultimate audiobook on the Param Vir Chakra.

Unmatched stories of courage and valour

The 21 stories of Param Vir Chakra awardees will continue to inspire generations of Indians to come. Ms. Bisht does a great job of researching each story and presenting them with the utmost humility. Her words effectively paint the picture of the different battlefields. It feels like I was an eye witness to the various stories. Such as when Captain Manoj Kumar Pandey attacked with his kukri during the Kargil war. Or when Major Shaitan Singh led 120+ soldiers and urged them to fight till the end in the Battle of Rezang La in 1962, which led to an immediate ceasefire from the Chinese. These stories of courage and valor will send a shiver down the spine of India's enemies and put doubts in the mind of the staunchest of her opponents.

Fantastic read. Goosebumbs worthy.

It was a fabulous read. It felt as if I was with the heroes reliving every moment with them. A must read for those who believe in the magic called patriotism that can turn common men into warriors.
