Book Description

On 12th September 1897, 21 Sikh soldiers from 36th Sikh Regiment held the small post of Saragarhi against the onslaught of 10,000 enemy tribesmen.

Fighting to the last, their gallant last stand cemented the reputation of the Sikhs as the bravest and most fearsome of British Indian soldiers.

This is the factual story of their heroism.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB - A MUST! 18 Dec. 2013
By Pyotr
In his superbly written and masterfully told book 'Saragarhi: The Forgotten Battle', author Jay Singh Sohal beautifully and unforgetably evokes the unprecedented heroism of 21 Sikh soldiers in one of history's most epic last stands.
Firmly grounded in the author's own, solid historical research and expertly conveying to contemporary audiences the enduring relevance of Saragarhi, Singh-Sohal's book also sheds important light on those most admirable tenets of Sikhism which made this unparallelled and all too little known feat of heroism at all possible.
A worthy tribute to the 21, 'Saragarhi: The Forgotten Battle' in many ways is an indespensable book and cannot be recommended enough!
