Descripción Pen & Sword Books, Leo Cooper, 2002. Estado de conservación: Fine. Signed by the author. Presentation Copy " and from David Morgan, Commandant 1/7 DEA Gurkha Rifles, 1981 - 84." 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. pp. 360 Illustrated #0816 ( Please note: Over standard weight. Orders via ABE Books may incur additional postage charges.

Descripción Leo Cooper 2003 like new copy, hard bound in dust jacket,1st edition, 7 x 9 1/2 , xxiv, 360 pages, illus, maps, sketches, notes, bibliog, index.------------------------------While many books have been written on the Falklands' War, the role of the Gurkhas has been largely neglected. This is surprising as their involvement attracted considerable media interest at the time and provoked huge concern and fear amongst the Argentinians.Mike Seear is well qualified to redress this historical and literary imbalance as he was seconded to the 1st Battalion, 7th Duke of Edinburgh's Own Gurkha Rifles as their Operations and Training Officer, and served with them throughout the War.--------------------------------However With the Gurkhas in the Falklands is much more than a personal account. Thanks to extensive research drawing on both British and Argentine sources this book is both an accurate and vivid record of the contribution of these legendary and fearless fighters. As a result, it will be warmly welcomed in many quarters, most obviously the Gurkha Regimental community. However, such is the unique respect and affection for the Gurkhas both within the British Army and the Nation as a whole, that this recognition of their key role in the remarkable victory will be greeted with widespread enthusiasm.-----------------------------The Author has also discovered massive interest in Argentina during his visits while researching this book. It was not the SAS, Paras, Commandos or air attacks that the occupying garrison and their families at home feared most but these wiry little men from Nepal with their kukris!Above all With the Gurkhas in the Falklands - A War journal is a fitting tribute to the contribution of the Gurkhas during the campaign and an overdue acknowledgment of their selfless service, skill and sacrifice.
