This book weaves together a tale of grassroot soldiering through the eyes and experience of a subaltern with his men in painting a unique picture of the history of the war in Bangladesh. The memoirs also take into account a comprehensive range of literature by Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani and foreign authors on the regimental histories and battle accounts of the war to authenticate the events. It gives an insight on what was the peak period of professionalism of the Indian Army. The book would be of interest to the war veterans and also the younger generations and academics as a unique study of military institutions and ethos of that era.
