New Delhi: As India remembers Sam Manekshaw on his fifth death anniversary, Zee News pays a tribute to one of the bravest soldiers of the soil. Popularly known as Sam Bahadur, he was the architect of the victory of the Indo-Pak war in 1971 that finally led to the creation of Bangladesh.
With a distinguished career that spanned over four decades and five wars, he was also the first Indian Army officer to be promoted to the rank of Field Marshal.
Sam Bahadur will live in our hearts and minds forever!
