A Soldiers General: An Autobiography

Joginder Jaswant Singh, a third-generation soldier from his family to join the army, was only fifteen years old when he enrolled in the National Defence Academy. And thus started the eventful journey of a simple and straightforward soldier born without a silver spoon in his mouth - his grandfather was a sepoy and his father a colonel in the Indian Army - who reached the top of his profession.

Bringing alive the charm and adventure of an army life lived to the full, General Singh also gives us astute analyses of many critical issues: the challenges from Pakistan and China, the threats of terrorism, insurgency and Naxalism, the importance of military diplomacy and the way forward for the armed forces in a rapidly changing world.
