General Hari Singh Nalwa was one of the greatest Sikh Generals. Like Napolean he personally led his Sikh troops into battle. Like Napolean he evoked intense loyalty and admiration. Remnants of this intense loyalty persist to this day. Nalwa is best known as the General who spear-headed the Sikh invasion of Afganistan. This picture by unknown artist Allenwalla (vernacular: Allen fellow) realistically depicts the battle hardened Nalwa Sahib, circa 1812. In accordance with the Sikh faith, Nalwa feared no one and had enmity towards none. A true Sikh hero, he treated the poor and dispossessed with love and compassion without regard to their creed or color. Captured prisoners were treated with dignity and humanity, a Sikh warrior tradition. Biographies and histographies of Nalwa are available in the English and Punjabi languages; these books do not have an ISBN numbers and can only be procured through alternate channels.
