I was an Army Recruiter and drafted the revised soldier recruiting policy for Bangladesh Army. In 2015, I wrote a guidebook titled ‘You Can Be A Soldier.’ The aim of writing the book was to help the youngsters to prepare themselves to join the army as soldiers and I dedicated it to my father who was a veteran too. Since then, the youngsters interested to join the army, navy and airforce as commissioned officers were requesting me to write a book on ISSB as well. I am already a published author and as an army veteran I’ve experienced the officer selection process. So, I couldn’t ignore their request and wrote this book.
In this book, I tried to share my understanding about the military as a profession, military legacy including Bangladesh Armed Forces, and the commissioned officer selection process. I have tried to discuss the officer selection process followed in the Bangladesh ISSB step by step and shared my opinions accordingly.
I hope this book will be useful for the candidates who want to join the armed forces as commissioned officers and serve the nation.
