Synopsis

Throughout our recent and not-so-recent history, the understated, fearless and hearty Gurkhas have served the British loyally and without complaint. For more than a hundred years, this bloodthirsty regiment has followed the British Army around the globe - from Gallipoli to the jungles of Burma in World War II, from Palestine to the Falklands and the Gulf War. This text tells the story of this regiment. It tells of the Gurkha blood running through the veins of British military conquests for more than two centuries, from the founding of the brigade by the terrifying, extraordinary Johnny Gurkha through to the amazing feats that put Gurkhas in the same distinguished company as the British Paras, the Commandos, the Guards and the Black Watch.

About the author

To research this book he has travelled all over India, Vietnam and the Far East where he has made many contacts with Gurkha soldiers, their families and other observers of the Gurkha brigade, to collate an astonishing dossier of first-hand interviews and information that will make this one of the best-researched military books of recent years. He read English Literature at the University of London - BA (Hons), MA - and spent a lifetime in journalism specialising in international and business affairs. He did his national service with the British Army in the Royal Corps of Signals in Cyprus and Germany.
