In hail, sleet, snow and pouring rain, the Indian infantryman maintains a silent vigil ever the nations frontiers. For over fifty years ever since Independence, he has never once lowered his guard be it on the Line of Control on the tree-covered high altitude ridgelines in Jammu and Kashmir the Actual Ground Position Line, at the icy mountaintops of Siachen Glacier, at the Line of Actual Control or the high Himalayas bordering the Tibetan Plateau.

Infantry - A Glint of the Bayonet provides glimpses of the raw courage of these Indian men of steel through four hundred illustrations. A crisp narrative tells the story of India's hardy infantrymen - their origin in India's countless villages, their tough training, their tenure of duty in the forward areas, in counter-insurgency operations and in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations. A treasure trove of facts and data, this book is a collectors' item.
