5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Book About A Fine Regiment
A thoughtful portrait of the Gurkhas which tells the story from the perspective of being inside the regiment. The book is a period piece somewhat and displays how the traditions of the regiment - and the regard in which it is held - have little altered over the years. A fine book about a fine regiment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful
This book is awful. I thought it would be an interesting read about life in the Gurkhas but instead it is a short (fortunately) ramble about a series of disconnected incidents, which leaves the reader wondering why on earth was it written in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Introduction To The Regiment, 3 Mar 2012
This review is from: So You Want To Be A Gurkha (Kindle Edition)
This short book is a great introduction to the ethos, humanity and uniqueness of the Gurkha soldier. Chris Darnell has written a personal account of his time spent serving with the regiment. He punctures some myths about the Gurkhas, whilst also rightly praising their virtues. The chapters are well weighted and cover distinct episodes. There are touches of humour, along with more formal passages of military history. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible, 15 April 2012
This review is from: So You Want To Be A Gurkha (Kindle Edition)
I read, and enjoyed "bugles and a tiger". This is terrible value for money, a short story that copies the anecdotes from Bugles and a Tiger, recounts the same sacrificial ceremony, and finishes with him leaving to join another regiment. It would be a nice, short, read if it was free but to charge for this book is a disgrace. Avoid!
