This book is a coming together of the then-young officers of the Indian Armed Forces who fought the war with grit and courage in the face of adversity. This is not just a gathering of facts but a lucid retelling of their triumphs, their many horrors, their challenges and the many battles they fought and won within and outside to put India first. A young officer who was taken prisoner, a Naval captain who left home days before his wedding, the fond memory of a martyred Lance Naik who threw himself before the enemy in order to help win a bigger battle, fifty years later, Brig B.S. Mehta brings to you essays by 29 brave Indian soldiers of the Eastern and Western Sector on what it meant to be young and in the line of fire. Each narrative is a tell-all depiction of valour, humour and horror, all of which helped them put India first.
