I have served for 30 years now and this is an outstanding book for those of us who are serving or have served, as we recognise everything and everybody. If you haven't served you may need to get some bits interpreted. Honest; irreverent; hilarious.

The perfect book for anyone wanting to spend more than 2 hrs in the company of British Army personnel!

I was a bit dubious about the book at first, as I thought it might be either a bit patronizing to us in the army or too complicated/technical for civvies to understand. However I left it on the coffee table for the lads to read and it literally has not been put down. Everyone that comes through picks it up and has a good laugh. They'll look first at their regiment, then the Special Forces page and then at the piss-take page of the RLC or Signals. It's a really funny assortment of facts, and most of the lads have said they'd buy it for themselves or as a present for someone they know who's ex-forces. Great for girlfriends and wives as well.

To get the most from this book you have to have served in the the Army , as an ex member of the British Army it brought back many happy memories and gave many a chuckle just like the ARRSE web site . Well worth the money.
To anyone who has not served it will probably seem a waste of money and , unfortunately for them , they will not be able to understand most of what the book is about .
The military sense of humour is what makes our Army the best in the world bar none , this book is a briliant example of that humour while imparting a lot of up to date information .
The Army has changed over the years , thankfully the British soliders attitude to life hasnt.

Major Des Astor writes fondly, amusingly and painfully accurately about the tribalism that is the strength of the British Army and, very often, its undoing in its internal relationships - and in its attitudes towards the other Services of the Crown. Don't be put off by the racy title - this is textbook stuff!

Most enjoyable and informative read. Lots of facts & figures with a light hearted approach, mostly to be appreciated by serving members and ex servicemen alike but of interest to the curious "outsider"
