About this title

Synopsis:

The extensive bibliography of the Falklands War has one glaring exception, the part played by the legendary Gurkhas. Regarded by many as the world's finest infantry soldiers, the fiercesome reputation of these Nepalese troops for bloodthirsty aggression and stealth put real fear into the Argentine troops and civil population. They sailed with 5 Infantry Brigade on the QE 2 and played a key role in the surrender of the occupiers.

Written by one of their officers, this book conveys the professional, personal and emotional aspects of the Gurkhas' involvement. It provides a unique insight into a fighting force surrounded by mystique.

About the Author:

Mike Seear served as a platoon commander with the Gurkhas and deployed with them to the Falklands. Now retired he lives in Norway, working in the civil aviation industry.
