5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling one the one hand, disturbing on the other..., 27 Jan. 2001
This review is from: When the Fighting is Over: A Personal Story of the Battle for Tumbledown Mountain and Its Aftermath (Paperback)
This book I read from cover to cover in one big breath. Having already seen the film of the book (an excellent film, I should add which unfortunately is not sold anywhere to my knowledge) I didn't really expect the book could move me more than the film. How wrong I was! The book is written by both Robert Lawrence (the guy it all happened to) and his father John Lawrence. Their writing alternates with eachother so that you get a good idea of what the son and the father (parents) are going through at the same time. I thought this book was compelling, often disturbing, but always heartwarming. And with all due respect to the previous reviewer: this book isn't about the Falklands or the British Army, it's about the struggle of a young man who got wounded, fighting for a cause he believed in, then finding out that society didn't care all that much about the victims of war. I also think that Robert Lawrence is a very courageous man, not only during the battle but even more so in trying to pick up the pieces and build up a living again.
