Over and out.
This book will take you in between the gun battles and make you realize what those 2 jawans and many others go through everyday. When we are even afraid of playing paintball, reading stories of these hero's who go to fierce gunbattles putting their life at stakes will send chills through you spine.
It's a beautifully written war books, which keeps you engrossed through out. A must must read for every Indian not for patriotism, but to realize what it takes to give life for your job, your colleagues and your country.
Hope our Politicians understand this and give due respect to them instead of squabbling on trival issues. Jaihind.
But before going to order it i wanna say one thing to all those buyers who are ordinary in English language as it is written buy two persons whose entire work field is media and communication.
Guys first increase your vocabulary then go for it..
As I'm not so extraordinary in English i faced many problems first but with the reading of this book, I m also working on my English,; and day by day my interest to read this book is increasing.
This book by the authors documents 14 such real-life encounters which happened in the recent past. The real incidents include events include as recent as the surgical attacks which happened couple of years ago and took the nation by storm for Indian armed forces bravery. Of these 14 incidents none is better than others and stay on equal footing. Each narration is bone chilling only makes us to stand and salute the bravest soldiers. What amazes me most is the commitment shown by the family of the soldiers in supporting the dream of their father, son or husband. They deserve even more respects and salutations from all of us as well. I am thankful to have read this book which passes high for both the narration and the real-life stories.
Being from an Army family, my reading of this book may have been more contextual that for a regular reader, so I am unable to pin point any major gaping holes in logic presented in the narration of events, should there be any. But, the authors seem to have done a pretty decent job in describing the events in as much lucidity as possible. I have heard many such stories, but it is always good to know a few more.
One thing that I didn't really like though was how the initial few chapters sounded less like account of soldiers and their operations, rather much like paeans about the political leadership. This is where the book moves away from traditional military non fiction, for objectivity is a must in such narratives.
Thank you Shiv Aroor and Rahul Singh for this fantastic book. I hope you continue writing and make this into a book series.
