A nation’s army comprises various regiments and their gallant soldiers, who have time and again, stood between the enemy and the people of the country, and defended their honour and right to live independently. As far as the Indian Army is concerned, the military exploits of 4/19 Hyderabad Regiment (now 4 Kumaon) is etched in history.
Brig Jasbir Singh in this book ‘Combat Diary’ has succinctly described the history, the wars, and various achievements and accomplishments of the 4/19 Hyderabad Regiment. No wonder that the nation’s first Param Vir Chakra winner was from this regiment! Right from its inception as part of the Nawab of Hyderabad’s illustrious army, and later in the various campaigns in the two World Wars, the story of the 4 Kumaon is compelling.
