  • This book covers the period 1948-82, taking the reader from turbulence brought about the granting of independence to India in 1947, through the long years of the Malayan emergency, confrontation in Borneo, the periodic overspills into Hong Kong of communist China's internal upheavals, to Belize and peacetime soldering in Britain and Brunei. Although these events are described mainly through the eyes of the Regiment , the book gives a broad account of the background and course of the campaigns in which the 6th queen Elizabeth's Own Gurkha Rifle have taken part.

     
    Above all, this is a story of that gallant and loyal hillman from Nepal, the Gurkha Rifleman. His courage and steadfastness, imperturbability and humour shine through on every page. Written by a distinguish military historian, this book is a valuable addition not just to the history of the Gurkhas themselves, but to that of the postwar British army as well.
