In the summer of 2006, Colour-Sargeant Kailash Limbu's platoon was sent to relieve and occupy a police compound in the town of Now Zad in Helmand. He was told to prepare for a 48-hour operation.

I really enjoyed the book, a great insight into Gurkha life. An honest and personal account that can only increase the readers respect .
