More readings:

I've read a fair number of items about the Gurkhas and their place in British history in the past. This week I read Osprey Men-At-Arms #41: The Gurkha Rifles, published 1974, so it doesn't include the deployments to the Falklands, etc, but it does a pretty good job of giving an overview of the origins of the relationship. A solid read on the subject.
