Description

Gurkhas have been recruited into the British and Indian armies since 1814-15 the year the East India Company went to war with Nepal and this study examines the many legends that have grown up around them. It puts the story of the expansion and contraction of Britain's Gurkha force into the context of Nepalese history, as well as that of the Indian and British Armies.
