This title deals with Gurkhas, Gorkhas and Nepal in the post-War World. The people of Nepal were not immune to the upheavals caused by the 1947 partition of India. "The Age of Rage" tells of a cloak and dagger operation that foils Soviet-inspired efforts to penetrate the Gurkhas fighting in the Malayan emergency - a cold war in a hot climate - and bring about their disbandment. Then after the Sino-Indian border war of 1962 - a hot war in a cold climate - the Chinese 're-educate' a group of Indian Army Gorkhas taken prisoner with a view to infiltrating them back into Nepal for an eventual rising. A daring attempt to rescue them is mounted. However this is only partially successful and those not rescued do eventually return to Nepal to wait until conditions are ripe for a people's war. Finally the British officer who took a leading part in the two earlier operations has to deal with the subsequent political jockeying of foreign intelligence services in Nepal as they try to outwit each other and take control of the country.
