About Book

Nepal is an agriculturally orientated country producing jute and rice, and one other attribute... the Gurkha. These fearless and loyal soldiers who have remained a key element of the British Army are renowned for their heroism and inspiration. This book is unique. It tells of the experiences of these warriors in many theatres of war all over the world, from how they were recruited, their training, their loss of contact for many years away from home and their loved ones, and last but not least, their suffering. Along with the author, Kangmang Naresh Rai, his excellent translator, Jayant Sharma and the clever editing from James Essinger with his assistant, Jacqueline McBride, these deeply moving tales are told by twenty-two of these warriors in their own words. Often amusing, very honest, very colourful, but not forgetting the terrible injuries, and treatment that they endured.
