Britain's Gurkhas

By Christopher Bullock

Published by Third Millennium (2009)

Ranging from 18th-century India to 21st-century Afghanistan, this new, highly illustrated authoritative history of the Brigade of Gurkhas is destined to become the definitive work on the subject. In this account, the whole panorama of the Brigade's unique story is covered from the early 19th Century to the present day, including the tense moments when the continued existence of the Brigade hung by the slenderest of threads.

As well as being a deeply researched and accurate account, there are plenty of instances of Gurkha humour shining through amidst battle and adversity. It is highly readable, and also takes full advantage of the unique archives of the Gurkha Museum. With the invaluable help of the Curator and Archivist, the book is lavishly illustrated with pictures, photographs and maps, many never seen outside the Museum.
