Description
About the Book

He became a legend in the Indian Army, who is still revered by the jawans. Brilliant General, brave fighter, Field Marshal Cariappa was first of all, a soldier of the people.

Joining the Army, under the British Raj, he displayed great valour and organizational abilities and broke the racial barrier to become the first Indian commanding officer. During World War II, fighting in the Middle East and the daunting terrain of the North West Frontier, Cariappa proved his mettle as a commander.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
