Katawal's memoir gives us another insider's account of the events that shaped recent Nepali history.

Kunda Dixit

, Nepali Times

Outspoken and bold, the general's life story is worth reading for more insight and understanding into the Nepalese Army and Nepal's politics.

Lok Raj Baral

Political scientist , The Kathmandu Post

Reading the General's autobiography is, in essence, reading the timeline of Nepal's struggle to emerge as a modern day democracy.
