As the Second World War sweeps the globe, follow 18-year-old Jim Chance into the jungles of Burma. Meet Thaman, a Gurkha soldier, and join the men in a fight for survival like no other. Raging rivers, ferocious beasts and the deadly might of the Japanese Army will push Jim and Thaman to the edge. Is there a way back from the brink? And when all is said and done, will the world remember their story?

Described as “compulsive” by Burma Campaign veteran JP Cross, “tremendous” by Dame Joanna Lumley and given 5 out of 5 by History with Jackson, The Jungle War contains a moving foreword by Gurkha soldier and record-breaking mountaineer Hari Budha Magar, as well as original illustrations to accompany the exciting text.
Keep the legacy of the Gurkha contribution to Allied victory alive and buy a copy – or two – for a young person in your life.
