ca it be true,
This review is from: A Gurkha's Story: The Explosive True Story of the First Gurkha in the SAS (Hardcover)
as sas soldiers sign a gagging order how is it possible to write a book on there time in the regiment...? so its either untrue or the publisher is bigging up the the title so people will buy it, if so thats not fair on the people that buy it for that reason.... "ive not read it yet, so im not putting the book down" an any gurka in my mind is a real heroe.

He never actually talks about the SAS, just the test required to pass. It basically goes from being accepted to back to the Brigade of Gurkhas.

Hi, not trying to be clever or critical, but might be worth running your reviews through a spell-check...

I don't think it's fair to review a book without reading it first.

if you read it you would see it was not a review of the book, but a moan at the description on the cover. I would never do any thing as low as to put down a soldier, gurkha or any other regiment for that mater. I have nothing but the greatest respect for our armed forces.... this kind of thing is done by publishers to get people to buy.

All it says on the cover is that he was the first Gurkha in the SAS, which is completely true. It doesn't claim to give a detailed account of his time in the regiment.
