Field Marshal Sam Hormusji Framji "Sam Bahadur" Jamshedji Manekshaw, MC (April 3, 1914 June 27, 2008) was an Indian Army officer. In a long career spanning nearly four decades, Manekshaw rose to be the 8th chief of staff of the Indian Army in 1969 and under his command, Indian forces concluded a victorious campaign during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971.

Sam Manekshaw was the first of only two Indian military officers to hold the highest rank of Field Marshal in the Indian Army (the other being Field Marshal K M Cariappa). His distinguished military career spanned four decades and through five wars, including World War II.

I feel Field Marshal K M Cariappa is best...!!!
