Publisher:Headline Publishing Group
Size:180 x 110 mm
Their ferocity is as legendary as their loyalty to the British Monarch and their regimental histories are crammed with acts of incredible bravery and sacrifice. Their reputation as fearsome fighting men remains undisputed and the mere threat of their kukri knives has put the fear of God into opposing forces throughout the world. John Parker's book is a fascinating testimony to the Gurkhas - a fighting force that stands dramatically apart in British military history. This is an updated edition which includes Gurkha's recent operation in Africa and to celebrate their successful campaigning for citizenship.
