Beyond NJ 9842: The SIACHEN Saga by Nitin A Gokhale

Operation Meghdoot was launched by the Indian Army on the barren and icy heights of the Siachen Glacier to thwart Pakistan from gaining control of this strategically located glacier. For three decades since then, Indian and Pakistani troops have been locked in an undeclared war on the world's highest – and coldest - battlefield.
