Superb, great read and swashbuckling Marco Esque carrying on with the sinister side of Rome. More to come hopefully but Csto needs a run out though.

Twisting the story of Jack is a great route to take. His ability to take on the most arduous of challenges is commendable.

Kept the camera dry during an off road excursion, so it was a good purchase and it was big enough for spares.

5.0 out of 5 stars Squaddie banter at its best, 31 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The humour may not suit all, but it certainly made laugh out loud at times. Followed by real tears of melancholy memories. A cracking good read. Real people doing a real job in a testing environment with a real enemy full of surprises.

It's HM Forces that put the Great into Great Britain. Long may the union of the Kingdom remain.

Good kit, but kindle now realised that most reading is done in bed at night and the new kindle with built in light is better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marco at his best, 31 Dec 2012

Although Cato wasn't around to keep him in check, Marco behaved himself (sort of). A good short read ideal for that post Xmas lull in proceedings.

5.0 out of 5 stars RESPECT, 1 July 2006
Simon Murray's account of one mans adventure in a foreign land is gripping. Life was hard from start to beginning, but the book pages just kept turning. I was returning home from Iraq when I read it and it put into perspective was I had previously complained about on my tour of Operations.

Mr Murray stuck with a hard job in a hard climate enduring self imposed hardships.

Why? Because he could.

5.0 out of 5 stars And I thought we did that first!, 5 April 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wally completed 27 years, I am currently running at 18 years so I can comment with some basis of experience. I picked the book up in the afternoon and with a few brews thrown in I put it down after 188 pages. I was banned to the spare room that night as my laughter was keeping the house awake. The book has honesty in abundance, the RMP hasnt changed in 40 years as has the rest of the Army. We are as fiercely proud of our appointment today as our predecesors where all those years ago. We still drink to eccess and the Cpl's Mess only differs in its music. A Monkey's Tale is a bloody good read with laughs a plenty. From reading the book I am of the opinion that Wally was Dogmatic, Proud, Frustrated, violent at times, caring the rest, honest, loyal to his mates and finally no different to those of us who still serve today. *****
