on 10 April 2006
Dusty Warriors is a watershed in the description of the difficulties and tribulations confronting modern soldiers. In the complicated international environment an average 18 year old from Hampshire can find himself an intermediary between political and religious conflicts around the world over the course of a brief 4 year miltary career. Professor Holmes expertly descibes the challenges facing this new breed of 21st Century warriors who are facing the same geographic, physical and moral challanges as their well lauded WW2 contemporaries. The quiet times of a 6 month tour are described alongside the hectic and fearful moments in contact with a ruthless and determined enemy force as well as the hearfelt impact of the loss of their brothers to enemy fire and accidents. A true classic of 21st Century history this is a must read for the general public and historians alike. As one of Profesor Holmes Dusty Warriors myself I cannot recommend this book enough, a classic of our times he has done the soldiers of 2004 a true and worthy service. A grateful Tiger of the Sands...
