The Gurkhas have been on the British frontlines since 1815. At the end of the twentieth century, these small but extraordinarily tough fighter demonstrated their courage again when they were among the first troops sent to Kosovo and East Timor to help restore peace to those trouble countries.
This book is a fascinating testimony to a fighting force that stands dramatically apart in British military history.
