This book is a lucid retelling of the triumphs, the many horrors, the challenges, and the many battles the soldiers 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 to help win a bigger battle, and so on. Fifty years later, Brig. B. S. Mehta brings together accounts from 29 brave Indian soldiers of the Eastern and Western Sector on what it meant to be young and in the line of fire.
