Book discussion | Mission Overseas: Daring Operations by the Indian Military

About the book

As India becomes a regional and global superpower, its armed forces will be expected to conduct more missions inside foreign countries, like they have in the past. Using never-before-seen secret military reports and eyewitness testimonies of the men on the ground, the author reconstructs three forgotten Indian operations overseas: in the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Sierra Leone.

Author

Sushant Singh is Associate Editor with the Indian Express. He served for two decades with the Indian Army, including assignments in Jammu and Kashmir and as a military observer with the United Nations.
