Description

This is a story entwined in aviation but much more than a story about aircraft, it follows the journey of a lowly Hawai Sepoy who went on to become one of the top officers of the IAF. Spanning decades, it recounts the endless adventures from the scrublands of the North Western Frontier, to the jungles of Burma, to the UK on the eve of D-Day and to the corridors of power in an independent India. Be it the formidable Japanese, the mighty Germans or the resolute tribal warriors, none could break the spirit of these airborne Indians. From an extensive collection of personal diaries, notes, and letters, Mike Edwards takes the reader into Harjinder’s fascinating world of adventure, aviation, politics, and national pride that lead him to being on of the driving forces behind making the Indian Air Force the 4th largest in the world.
