Bugles and a Tiger : My life in the Gurkhas Paperback / softback

Part of the W&N Military series

Paperback / softback

Description

The first of John Master's evocative memoirs about life in the Gurkhas in India on the cusp of WWIIJohn Masters was a soldier before he became a bestselling novelist.

He went to Sandhurst in 1933 at the age of eighteen and was commissioned into the 4th Gurkha Rifles in time to take part in some of the last campaigns on the turbulent north-west frontier of India. John Masters joined a Gurhka regiment on receiving his commission, and his depiction of garrison life and campaigning on the North-West Frontier has never been surpassed.

BUGLES AND A TIGER is a matchless evocation of the British Army in India on the eve of the Second World War.

Still very much the army depicted by Kipling, it stands on the threshold of a war that will transform the world.

This book is the first of three volumes of autobiography that touched a chord in the post-war world.
