The backstory to The Red-Haired Gurkhas, covering two generations in World War 2 and the Second Malayan Emergency period of the 1980s. The children’s grandfather has a secret after all, one he’s unwilling to burden his family with. But his ghostly servant isn’t the biggest surprise. What was done to the enemy soldiers by the other keeper of his kins was as just as evil as the atrocities committed during the war. Only one person survived the massacre – a boy soldier sent against his wish to a war he wanted no part of.
