Summary of 'A Ridge Too Far - War in The Kargil Heights' By Captain Amarinder Singh 

In 1999, fifty-two years after Independence, Pakistani forces once again intruded into Indian ran territory across the Line of Control, initiating what has come to be known as the 'Kargil Border War'.

A Ridge Too Far is the story of this war fought between the two countries in the Kargil Heights, narrated from a military point of view. It stands apart from many other accounts of the war that have already been published, in that it is the first attempt to tell the military story with close attention to facts and after a detailed study of all the battles that were fought. The book also seeks to record for posterity the thoroughly professional response and gallant performance of all those who fought the war or were concerned with its direction, from the Chief of Army Staff to the youngest soldier.

The book is divided into four parts. Part I is an overview of the situation that gave rise to the war, covering the history of conflict between India and Pakistan over the past half-century. Part II describes the harsh and hostile terrain that exists on both sides of the Line of Control, the theatre of the war itself, in adapting to which the Indian soldier displayed great qualities of leadership and professionalism.

Part III details the build-up by the Indian Army before conducting offen­sive operations, and the actual conduct of battle from Corps down to Brigade. Finally, Part IV gives a stirring and detailed account of the heroic battles fought by ten infantry battalions, all of whom were cited by the Chief of Army Staff for distinguished and gallant service.
