From Dr Hamid Hussain.
Recently came across a great book about an officer and gentleman of a bygone era. Quite a timely reminder. In the environment of general deteriorating standards of both Pakistani and Indian societies, armed forces cannot be removed from their environment. Many officers are simply foraging in the same pastures. A pause and looking at the conduct of upright officers and gentlemen may provide a different set of role models for young officers. Respect is earned by the character and not by the amount of brass on one’s shoulders. Enjoy the reading.

This book by the husband and wife team provides a window to the personality of an officer and genetleman Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. Brigadier ® Behram Panthaki served as ADC to Sam and Behram and Zanobia had a life long association with Sam and his family. This gives authors a unique vantage point. They have done an excellent job of introducing the readers to the human side of Sam.
