Second World War
This book is a collection of experiences of Hindustani soldiers during the World War II. What they told was recorded in their own words. It is a stirring saga of sacrifice and their spirited will to survive even on a ration of biscuits on battlefields. Besides forming a significant section of manpower in W.W. II, they depict a fascinating historic account of the people of the countries they visited and the troops of the enemy they fought with. They give details and descriptions which have perhaps never figured in any book on Military History. These stories come from soldiers, majority of who were illiterate village boys. Above all it depicts the life in the British period and the administration in those days. The narrations are a slice of British Indian history.
