Arc of the Gurkha : From Nepal to the British Army, Hardback Book

Arc of the Gurkha : From Nepal to the British Army Hardback

Hardback

Description

The Gurkhas are an elite fighting force from Nepal who have served the British Crown since 1815.

They occupy a unique place in the public's imagination, and are renowned for their loyalty, professionalism and resolve. Through stunning photography, Arc of the Gurkha explores the span of the Gurkha career from recruitment through to training and deployment up to post-military employment and retirement.

Alex Schlacher has accompanied the Gurkhas on operations in Afghanistan, on exercises in the Brunei jungle and Australia, and has visited all the units in the Brigade as well as retired and medically discharged Gurkhas.

She has taken intimate portraits of hundreds of soldiers and heard their stories, many of which are recounted in this book. There have been other books on the Gurkhas, but none has portrayed the individual soldiers and focused about their backgrounds, lives and thoughts.

This unique and insightful publication is the first to explore what it really means for a Gurkha to be a Gurkha.
