  • The Gurkhas are a famed but mysterious band of warriors whose history has always been told by outsiders, This book is the result of in depth interviews with more than one hundred Gurkha soldiers past and present, and for the first time depicts key military campaigns in the words of men who were there. These eyewitness accounts include the lengthy battles against the Japanese in the Burmese Jungle, the action against communist rebels in Malaya and Hongkong, as well as more recent deployments in the Falklands and Iraq. J. P. Cross and Buddhiman Gurung provide a thorough introduction to Gurkha culture, a historical overview of each campaign fought, and record some of the peculiarities of their encounters with these most resilient of soldiers
