Description
Preface

The Armed Forces of independent India have fought four major wars. Many soldiers have shed their blood to defend the honour of the Motherland. Some even laid down their lives in foreign lands in UN peace-keeping operations. The History Division undertook the writing of this book to immortalise their deeds of bravery. It is hoped that these stories would serve as an inspiring force for future generations.

I am grateful to the three Services Headquarters, Regimental Centres, awardees and their relatives for providing us the necessary information about the brave soldiers covered in this book. Regretfully, in some cases it has not been possible to use all the information supplied to us for lack of space. It is requested that inaccuracies, if any, found in the stories by the readers may kindly be brought to the notice of the Director, History Division, for correction.

The compilation of this book was first undertaken by Dr. B.C. Chakravorty, Narrator. Subsequently, in the light of additional information collected from various sources it was revised and updated by Dr. D.C. Verma, Dy. Director and myself. Shri Y.C. Bhargava, RA, rendered valuable assistance by way of collecting necessary information. Two more sections viz. 'The Glorious Saga of the Indian Army' and 'Medals and Decorations of India' have been added to the volume to make it more useful.

Shri G.B. Singh, Dy. Director, Shri Jasvinder Singh, SRO, Shri T.R. Gulati, SRO, Shri Om Shankar, Asstt Director (Heraldry) and Shri T.R. Tandon, RA also helped me in various measures. Shri Sudhir Sharma, Shri N.K. Sagar, and Smt. Chitra Santhanam, typed the manuscript. I am indebted to these colleagues for their valuable cooperation.

I am indeed grateful to the Ministry of Defence for the help and encouragement extended to me in completing this task. However, for statement of facts and expression of views the Editor alone is responsible.

In the end I would like to record my grateful thanks to M/s. Allied Publishers who undertook the challenging task of publishing this book. They have done a marvellous job indeed.
