4.0 out of 5 stars All the right moves, 8 Feb. 2015

This book resonated with me as my son served as a port op in marchwood with the RLC and my brother was in the RCT in Bunde BAOR where the author worked which I visited on numerous occasions
It is unfortunately another one of those personal histories which means a lot to the individual but to the reader it tends to be a little bit of a series of facts and figures unless there is some other involvement.
Having said that I enjoyed it because I had involvement and I would recommend it to anyone with a military interest

5.0 out of 5 stars The first James Bond at war, 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For someone who was a sickly child Patrick Job had an amazing war
The book touches on his childhood and then spends time as he learned to sail in some very challenging area's before the war. As a sailor he naturally joins the RN and then the action really starts.
Written in a manner of the man and the moment which downplays his actions it is well worth reading

5.0 out of 5 stars REFRESHINGLY GOOD READ, 14 July 2014

Some people have to beat their own path Jackie Moggridge was one of these rare people.
As much dedicated to a career in flying as she was nieve about life this book shows that for some nothing is preordained
A really interesting book for both men and women - Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking treatment of POWS, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book about a rarely discussed and little known aspect of the first world war.
Especially relevant to me as my Grandfather had been a pow and I remember him saying that he was so hungry that he ate grass, I just wish I knew then what I know now after reading this excellent book

Raises many questions apart from being a good read - why so many casualties from this reformed division, why was it always at the sharp end?

Good viewpoint from a platoon commander of an Infantry platoon who seems always to be in the wrong place at the wrong time

3.0 out of 5 stars OK (ish), 19 Mar. 2014

Mostly just a catalogue of dates and event but it does give you an understanding of what it was like to be in a convoy during the Happy Times and alos what it was clinicaly like when those times ended

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 5 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It brings home the mud and sqalor of the trenches.
It also turns the spotlight on the differences between the Officer and the enlisted man - few baths and fewer trips behind the lines for them.
Well worth reading
