The Indian Armed Forces are the epitome of courage, fearlessness, patriotism & sacrifice. The book by Shiv Aroor and Rahul Singh narrates 14 stories of extraordinary courage.

India’s most fearless is a compilation of some of the most dangerous and daunting missions and situations faced by Indian soldiers. It begins with the most recent and provocative Indian army escapade - the surgical strikes. Each story will only increase your respect and awe for the men and women who safeguard our borders. Their sense of duty will leave you ashamed for how little you think or do for them while your safety is their first priority. Sometimes I was bothered by how little concern they have for their own security and felt their l ... more
