The Gurkhas. Very slight shelf wear to edge of D/J. Yje Gurkhas have been on the British frontlines since 1815. At the end of the twentieth century, these small but extraordinary tough fighters demonstrated their courage again when they were among the first troops sent to Kosovo and East Timor to help restore peace to those troubled countries. The author discovered the depth of their commitment when he travelled to Nepal and talked to many former Gurkha soldiers who recalled their service with the British Army with great pride. His book is a fascinating testimony to a fighting force that stands dramatically apart in British military history. Illustrated. 276 pp.
