Lancer Publishers & Distributors, 2000 - Biography & Autobiography - 440 pages

This is a book about a soldier who had the courage of his convictions and was not afraid to use his judgment and face the consequences. He not only set a standard for himself to perform to the best of his ability but inspired others to do the same. The general has highlighted the shortfalls in strategic thinking on the part of a few military commanders during the J&K operations in 1947, Sino-Indian conflict of 1962, and Indo-Pak war in 1965. He wrote his magnum opus with the intent of passing on his experiences to the younger generation of officers ready to serve the country. This autobiography recounts all the details of the eventful life of a highly distinguished soldier.
