DESCRIPTION: The author was a light infantry officer, seconded to 
the Gurkha Battalion a month before the Argentine bandits invaded 
the Falklands.  - The Gurkas are one of the finest infantry units in 
the world and are a highly valued component of the British Army – 
Most Highly Recommended.

When the Argentine bandits invaded the Falklands, they thought it 
was an easy war and believed Britain too weak and decadent to do more 
than lodge protests at the United Nations. It must have come as a 
shock when Britain raised a carrier task force in weeks, carrying 
the cream of the British Army, and sent it 8,000 miles to liberate 
the Falkland islanders from fascist oppression. In a lighting 
campaign, the British cleansed the Falklands of the bandits and 
restored democracy and freedom. The Gurkas naturally formed part of 
that elite force and demonstrated their impressive professionalism in 
battle.

The lying Argentines tried to circulate stories of Gurkha 'atrocities' 
as part of their propaganda attempts to win international approval 
for their criminal activities. Of course the Gurkhas do have a 
fiercesome reputation and many an Argentine invader must have feared 
meeting a Gurka in battle, but the Gurkhas have always behaved 
impeccably and served the British Army loyally.

This is an excellent appraisal of the Gurkhas and their part in O
peration Corporate. There is illustration in the form of sketches and 
photographs, making a fitting tribute to a fine fighting force.
