About: The definitive account of the 1999 Kargil war ??? the strategy, the effects, the heroism ??? from the man in charge. In February 1999, Pakistani Army personnel, disguised as jehadi militants, infiltrated into mountainous Kargil and occupied key vantage points. Their intrusion triggered off a limited war between the world???s newest nuclear states. It was a bitter battle, and one that throws up important lessons for India???s defence preparedness, as also its responses to flare-ups such as this. This book is also a reminder of the unparalleled heroism that was on display during those grim weeks, heroism that has become a benchmark for bravery.
