September 12, 1897, twenty-one soldiers of the 36th Sikh Regiment, including their commander, Havildar Ishar Singh, faced impossible odds. Over ten thousand Pathans and Afghan tribesmen advanced on their signaling post of Saragarhi, located in the North-West Frontier province of undivided British India. For the next seven hours, the Sikhs fought to the last man, protecting the Indian soil of the British Empire with unflinching courage and determination. Each was posthumously awarded the Indian Order of Merit, the highest gallantry award an Indian soldier could receive from the British crown. Never in the history, or since the battle of Saragarhi, has an entire contingent of troops received the highest gallantry honor for a single action. This is their story, based on the actual dispatches sent during the battle and the days that followed it.

… the name of your race has become almost synonymous in the English language with traditions of desperate courage and unflinching loyalty.

-  Lord Curzon, Viceroy of India, in Lahore. (The Times, April 07, 1899)

…the conduct displayed by the 21 men of the 36th Sikh Regiment whose names were inscribed on the memorial was characteristic of the [Sikh] nation's traditions. It should be kept as an example to others, in order to show how brave men should behave when facing fearful odds.
-  General Sir Arthur Power Palmer (The Times, April 17, 1902)

    I knew nothing about the the Battle of Saragarhi before I read this book. It was engaging, explained the battle very well and made me realize that this Battle makes the Alamo look a fair fight!

  4. Great for teaching kids about sikh history 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2013

    Some of my family can not read punjabi and have troubles understanding long complicated punjabi words, so these comic books are great for teaching them sikh history in english due to the language barrier.

    I would recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy a interesting, fun, well written, nicely illustrated comic book on the sikh history.

    Worth every penny.

  14. I feel proud to read this 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jan 2012

    This comic is truly a mark of respect for those who laid down their lives and didn't turn back on their duties. The whole book doesn't let you distract at any step. Very well narrated and graphics were really good. It was like making movie with 21 heroes in just 40 pages. All was done in very professional manner. I congratulate whole team of Mr. Daljeet Singh Sidhu and Mr. Amarjit Virdi for this great uprala. A must read for young children and even adults to learn about our glorious past.


  15. Amazing presentation 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2012

    I am glad Sikh Comics publishd the graphic novel on this great battle. We really need to tell this story to the world. This comic does it really well. Very inspiring indeed. I will now get a few copies for my non-sikh friends.


  16. Impressive illustration of a great battle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2012

    I just received the book and truly enjoyed it. I have many Sikh friends.... unbounded respect. Unfortunately, so far I knew little of their glorious history. This book not only narrates the true story of the Battle of Saragarhi very well but nicely brings forth the force behind the Sikh spirit of bravery and sacrifice. I look forward to more such titles from the Sikh Comics project.

    I look forward to my copy in a few days
