The Irish Gurkha
Bryan (Paddy) Dunlop is an Irishman who managed to succeed in his quest to join the elite Gurkha Rifles at a time when the Troubles were at their height.

In this lighthearted and serious book, he writes about his adventures he encountered on his way to Sandhurst and his experiences when he uses his Gurkha skills on a diamond mine in Angola, West Africa.

Funny and sad, this is well worth a read.

The Gurkhas
"Filled with interesting and often highly entertaining historical anecdotes, and there are some rare photographs and illustrations. . . . Lucid, well written. . . . A very sound contribution to our understanding of British Empire and South Asian history."—Choice
This book will tell who the Gurkhas are and where they come from. It will describe their manners, customs, and character, and their history as soldiers, with special attention to their unique skills and remarkable valor. Their story is as colorful and as romantic as that of the French Foreign Legion, and yet it has never been fully or adequately told.
