Bana Singh & A Rare Military Feat On The Icy Slopes Of Siachen

NEW DELHI: It had never happened on the world’s highest battlefield till the Indian Army decided to do it 34 years ago. The recapture of the Quaid Post by a small group of determined soldiers led by then Naib Subedar Bana Singh is counted among the finest military successes on the Siachen Glacier.

In this episode of ‘Simply Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale details all that and more.
