The bravery of the Gurkha regiments is known far and wide. There is ample proof of the military prowess of this warrior-race in the British and Indian history. The Gurkhas who by nature are bold, enduring, faithful, frank independent and self-reliant, have inherited the military spirit from their forefathers. The author makes an attempt to study the ethnology of Nepal, the abode of the Gurkhas.
The compilation, a reprint of the edition of 1936, is really useful for containing authentic and invaluable information on the Gurkhas.
The book has the speciality of containing seven appendices (one of which relates to the Text of the Treaty of 1923 between Nepal and Great Britain) and a Skeleton Map of Nepal showing distribution of Tribes.
