SOLDIER & WAR STORIES

In our day to day lives, hardly do we take out a second and think about all those who make it possible for us to live, do we? This challenge is inspired from those who fight for us, sacrifice their all for us. Those, who live away from their families, suffer the worst of conditions and yet never hesitate to do their work. Yes, they are our soldiers.

This challenge also aims at reading books which give a close look on all the great wars of history.
