Bought this book for my son who is an Army Cadet in what remains as a Battery of the South otts Hussars. Back in the 80's I was also in the same ACF Battery and so I thought it would be good to learn something of the history of the SNH. The book was brilliant! The recollections of the men who fought, who lived and died was at times comical, endearing, frustrating and yet somehow a brotherhood. My daughter has recently had the pleasure of meeting with Ray Ellis of the SNH who contributes greatly to the text at a uniformed services class and she was overawed. His stories were gripping and full of emotion. A great read if you like military history, a great read if not! Highly recomended.

A cracking good read. Really brings home the horror of war. These gunners were true heroes when heroes were heroes and not some overpaid prat on a football field.

HASH(0x941545a0) out of 5 stars A Very Interesting Book 24 Nov. 1998
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Perhaps I am a little biased in this review as my father was a member of the regiment during the time it covers. I bought two copies last Christmas one for myself and one for my father. I couldn't put the book down and read it in two days flat (a feat for someone who is Dyslexic and shys away from reading!). I wouldn't expect anyone who does not have connections with the regiment to be so enthusiastic about reading the book!
The book covers the regiment from just before the start of the Second World War to its defeat in 1942. It is a good social history of the men who served and is written from audio transcripts they made and which are stored in the Imperial War Museum. The transcripts are of the soldiers who were mainly the lower ranks and thus gives a real insight into the war for the "common" man. It is not a dry account about battles or tactics, just commented transcripts of how the men lived, trained and fought.
The book does not cover in any detail the tactics and general stratergy of the war in North Africa. It would be nice to have a little of background knowledge on why the regiment was placed and moved around the continent.
My father claims there are a few exagerations in some of the acounts - especially the one of some men getting drunk on the front line in Tubruk.
I can recomend this book if you are interested in Nottingham, WWII and North Africa, or the lives of terratorial soldiers.
