This book Military History and Heritage of Nepal, a collection of introductory information of the forts from which Nepal launched various battles against its adversaries or against which its adversaries launched various battles, takes you back to Nepal's past-glorious as well as fraught with sense of loss. Reading Dr. Prem Singh Basnyat, a historian who writes about Nepal's military history, geopolitics and international relations, is like travelling back to time.

Readers get insights about the battles Gorkhali forces (later Nepali forces) fought within and outside the current territorial boundaries of Nepal. Beginning with Nepal's war against Sikkim, coming down to the war of unification led by King Prithvi Narayan Shah, to the war against British India to the last war Nepal fought against the foreign power-the war against Tibet-the book chronicles the details of gallantry and loss that Nepal stood witness to.

In this sense, the book can best be described as an account of wars with the details of the forts through which those wars were fought. In it is the description of forts from Mechi in the east to Mahakali in the western frontier. Besides, the author has travelled to places outside Nepal such as Sikkim and Dehradun, Malaun and Kangda and Nalapani to take the firsthand information from the locals regarding what they think about these forts. The description also derives from the textual research on books of history written by various authors-Nepali and foreigners alikePrem Singh Basnyat, PhD 21
