Parker, John: The Gurkhas - The Inside Story Of the World's Most Feared Soldiers , London: Bounty Books (Division of Octopus Publishing), 2006

Hardback, reprint - first published by Headline in 1999, very good condition, in a very good unclipped (12.99) dust-jacket, publisher's original illustrated laminate boards, 276 pages including index, b/w photo and line illustrations-------" The Gurkhas have been on the British frontlines since 1815. At the end of the 20th century these small but extraordinarily tough fighters demonstrated their courage again when they were among the first troops sent to Kosovo and East Timor to help restore peace to those troubled countries. The author discovered the depth of their commitment when he travelled to Nepal and talked to many former Gurkha soldiers who recalled their service with the British Army with great pride. The book is a fascinating testimony to a fighting force that stands dramatically apart in British military history." (Book ref. 2507 )  £ 10.00
