The Kargil Folklore : Tales of Valour and Sacrifice from the Summer of 1999

Deepak Surana's The Kargil Folklore : Tales of Valour and Sacrifice from the Summer of 1999

The Kargil Folklore takes you back on a trip to the icy heights of the Dras, Mushkoh and Batalik sectors in Kargil. This book depicts the five crucial battles of Tololing, Three Pimples, Tiger Hill, Pt. 4875 and Khalubar, which turned the course of this war in 1999 in favour of India. 

This book delves into the camaraderie of young officers, barely out of the academy, and how they went on to become household names in the country. With direct inputs from over 100 officers and jawans, who were a part of the war, the author brings out never heard before anecdotes from the Kargil battlefield.

Which artillery officer was instrumental in coding the enemy’s positions as India Gate and Helmet Top? What were the promises made by the jawans of the 2nd Rajputana Rifles? How did a young officer motivate his brave Rajput men to capture Tololing? Why did an officer from Nagaland remove his boots at 16000 feet height? What made the Havaldars of 17th Jat fearless in battle? What role did ‘the army wife’ play to ensure success in battle? How did two young officers from Kangra valley decimate the enemy at the height of 5140 metres and what prompted the young commanding officer of a battalion to fire a Fagot missile on the enemy on Pt. 4875?

To find answers to these and many more such curious queries, read The Kargil Folklore!
