5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating and amusing compendium of military wit over the years, 7 Dec 2013
As an ex-soldier myself I really enjoyed recalling so much that has been passed down from generation to generation in all parts of the military. The wonderful wisdom that reflects on shared experiences that are unique to those who serve in the armed forces and the amazing wit that keeps everyone sane, no matter how crazy the circumstances, both in peace and war. But this is a book whose appeal is not limited to those who have served. So much 'wit and wisdom', not to mention vocabulary, has been passed on to the wider world and it will appeal to a very wide audience. I know only too well how much soldiers whinge and gripe while serving, no matter the circumstances good or bad. Once released from their military duties, nearly all of them look back on those years as the best experiences of their lives. There is much in this book that provides some sort of narrative or explanation to that paradox.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good translation - Military to Civilian, 7 Nov 2013
A must have for civilians who have either interfaced, or have to interface with ex or serving military. An excellent translation manual for the civi b******(one who has never served in the UK Armed Forces) and partial thesaurus for the enormous volume (a number similar to that of flip-flops owned by members of a large Far-Eastern country) of military acronyms and abbreviations.
