    “Finally, the author breaks his silence in public with this powerful memoir that is a severe indictment of a broken political and military system that led to the breakup of Pakistan and the descent into the politics of revenge and corruption.

    This book needs to be read and discussed by young officers in every regiment and headquarters of the Pakistan army. It is a paean to the “band of brothers” who dared to risk their careers for the sake of the country. Some were relatives of mine.
