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.
