I'd recommend this book to anyone with an interest in; WWII, life in the '30s and '40s, and of course the Royal Scots Fusiliers.
The central theme of the book is war and Dave conveys how key war encounters are often random in their planning and execution. A point reinforced by the fact that Cyril can't help himself from endeavouring to be a good soldier, yet he is candid enough to acknowledge that his survival is as much due to luck, as due to the application of those skills.
If you are looking for a book full of heroic endeavour this is not the one for you. If you want to read a book that describes war as it is, from the perspective of an honest soldier look no further.
