Rarely have I read a book from start to finish without putting it down. My father commanded an Infantry battalion in the IPKF and would often tell me his version of the battles. The similarity of rhetoric in this book was so similar, it had to come from a seasoned veteran of war, a thinking soldier who understood the futility of war, yet never hesitated from a warrior’s call to arms.
Though it’s claimed as fiction, I am sure every incident here is true but for the names of those involved.
I have to read Abhay’s earlier book, which I am ordering right now.
