Each one has its own identity, values, and morals that bring people from different parts of the country and hold them together in bonds stronger than that of blood.

Told by the very men who follow the illustrious feats of their predecessors, Regiment Diaries tells us timeless tales that warm the hearts, moisten the eyes, and leave you in even greater awe of the bravest children of India.
