An amazing journey of an Infantry Unit, so proud of its heritage, to find itself at the Nadir, helped by circumstances – when its Commanding Officer was lost to an impulsive soldier`s bullets; officer, men and weapon were lost in quick succession; Counter Terrorist operations went awfully wrong – there seemed to be no light at the end of the tunnel. Morale of the Unit was at its lowest; others viewed it with circumspection and the question in every mind was, will the unit be able to bounce back?!

The Unit held its nerves, helped by resilience of its brave officers, JCOs and men; eager to redeem its `Name` and `Izzat`-so dear to a soldier. The Unit fought back to regain its lost glory – but not without paying its cost in sweat and blood!

The Day That Changed it All is written in the precise and unassuming language of a soldier. For the military reader, every page is full of lessons, big and small, in the craft of soldiering. It is one of the few works that explain simply and in lucid detail how a leader can drive his command to any extent of performance by training and motivation, how caring and preparation will any day outshine fear of punishment.

Though a military book, it is a must-read for ‘civilians’ spanning a wide range of age, profession and experience. It has long been understood, but not often acknowledged, that running a successful army infantry unit is the final word on leadership and management. The art of motivation and activation of human resource is the forte of any successful army, especially so the infantry, since manpower is its particular strength and specialty. Any non-military leader, manager, student or admirer of the art of leadership would do well to read this masterpiece of caring, motivation and application of all that makes heroes out of men and winners out of teams.

There are compelling descriptions of dangerous operations, sometimes carried out with surgical precision and sometimes fallen to the undeterminable hand of fate.

Definitely, a must-read for all thinking people, military or otherwise.
