Colonel Surinder Kumar Bhatia, 'Hero of Shahbazpur', 113 Engineer Regiment, Retired

Colonel Surinder Kumar Bhatia, who commanded a Company of 113 Engineer Regiment, during the Battles for Shakargarh Sector (1971) has been published after our ongoing discussion in continuation of my pioneer publications (Part I & II) on Indian Armoured Corps' first-ever mine-breaching operations during the war. His story adds to our understanding of The Indian Army at War.

A heroic tale published in Fauji India Magazine (access online); as a rejoinder to a set of articles in my "Battlefield Tales - 2" a special series of historic articles dedicated to unsung heroes of our Nation. This series brings the battlefield to you as they were experienced and narrated by our veterans.
