They are Deadliest Warriors you've never heard of. The Gurkhas are knife wielding, pint-size Himalaya mountain fighters who, when outnumbered 2 to 1 by the well-trained British army in the Nepalese War, took on 30,000 troops, slashing through their enemies at lightning speed. The British were so blown away by the Gurkhas ferocity and success in battle, that they recruited the Gurkahs to fight for England– an alliance that remains 200 years later.
