Full Description:

The result of unprecedented in-depth interviews with Gurkha soldiers past and present, Gurkhas at War depicts key military campaigns of the twentieth century. These eyewitness accounts cover the lengthy battles against the Japanese in Burma, the action against Communist rebels in Malaya and Hong Kong, plus more recent deployments of Gurkhas in the Falklands, the Gulf, the Balkans, and East Timor. The result is a powerful and intimate introduction to Gurkha culture and recruiting traditions and an insider's view on the numerous issues facing the Gurkhas today in Nepal and in context with the British Army.

J.P. Cross has written a number of books on the Gurkhas and Nepalese history.  He has spent nearly 40 years serving in Asia, most of them with the Gurkhas.  He and co-editor Buddhiman Gurung live in Pokhara, Nepal.
