  • For 300 years, the Gorkhas of Nepal and India have had a continuous, unique heritage of being celebrated martial defenders with an intact ethnic composition. The Gorkha soldiers were forged through the fires of history to become what they are today.
     
    The first-ever illustrated history of the Gorkhas, The Khukri Braves portrays the rich history and culture of this gallant community in all its vibrancy. Painstakingly researched and evocatively written by Jyoti Thapa Mani, one of India's best newspaper and magazine designers, this is the first such book by a person of Gorkhali origin.
     
    An exhaustive, vivid compilation of historical research comprising previously unknown anecdotes, surprising facts and breathtakingly beautiful images, it provides a vivid account of the travails and triumphs of the Gorkha community. This is a must-read to understand the heritage of a community heralded for their courage.
