Deadliest Warrior Season 3 Episode 9: Gurkhas vs French Foreign Legion - Video - FULL:

September 14th, 2011 -- The two warriors who literally changed the outcome of World War II finally go head-to-head! The Gurkhas, fearless mountain assassins, take on the French Foreign Legion, the elite army of real-life expendables.


Gurkha are people from Nepal who take their name from the 8th century Hindu warrior-saint Guru Gorakhnath. Gorkha District is one of the 75 districts of modern Nepal. Gurkhas are best known for their history in the Indian Army's Gorkha regiments, the British Army's Brigade of Gurkhas and the Nepalese Army.

In the Gurkha War (1814–1816) they waged war against the British East India Company army. The British were impressed by the Gurkha soldiers and after reaching a stalemate with the Gurkhas, made Nepal a protectorate.[3] Much later, they were granted the right to freely hire them as mercenaries from the interior of Nepal (as opposed to the early British Gurkha mercenaries who were hired from areas such as Assam (i.e., the Sirmoor Rifles) and were then organised in Gurkha regiments in the East India Company army with the permission of then prime minister, Shree Teen (3) Maharaja (Maharana) Jung Bahadur Rana, the first Rana Prime-minister who initiated a Rana oligarchic rule in Nepal.

FFL - French Foreign Legion:
The French Foreign Legion is a unique military wing of the French Army established in 1831. The Foreign Legion was exclusively created for foreign nationals willing to serve in the French Armed Forces. Commanded by French officers, it is also open to French citizens, who amounted to 24% of the recruits as of 2007.

The Foreign Legion is today known as an elite military unit whose training focuses not only on traditional military skills but also on its strong esprit de corps. As its men come from different countries with different cultures, this is a widely accepted solution to strengthen them enough to work as a team. Consequently, training is often described as not only physically challenging, but also extremely stressful psychologically.
