One book finished, a couple more follow:

First was Osprey Campaign #172: Gibraltar 1779 – 83: The Great Siege, the tale of how once taken by the British, they held out during a three-year siege by the Spanish and French at the time of the American Revolutionary War. I found it moderately interesting.

Then, Osprey Elite #49: The Gurkhas which discusses how the British first recruited them, and the official structure of the Gurkha regiments up until the time the book was published. Pretty good short book on the subject.
