With the Gurkhas in the Falklands

£50.00

Product description

First edition, signed by the author and also by David Morgan, Commandant of 1/7 Gurkha Rifles 1981-84. While many books have been written on the Falklands' War, the role of the Gurkhas has been largely neglected. This is surprising as their involvement attracted considerable media interest at the time and provoked huge concern and fear amongst the Argentinians. Mike Seear is well qualified to redress this historical and literary imbalance as he was seconded to the 1st Battalion, 7th Duke of Edinburgh's Own Gurkha Rifles as their Operations and Training Officer, and served with them throughout the War. However 'With the Gurkhas in the Falklands' is much more than a personal account. Thanks to extensive research drawing on both British and Argentine sources this book is both an accurate and vivid record of the contribution of these legendary and fearless fighters. Page edges have a number of smudges on them.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
