Disappointing at best,
By A Customer
This review is from: When the Fighting is Over: A Personal Story of the Battle for Tumbledown Mountain and Its Aftermath (Paperback)
Whilst one must appreciate the pain Robert Lawrence has gone through after he was shot in the head during the Battle for Mount Tumbledown, his father and himself have not written a very enthralling book. Little is spent on the battle, and the majority is of this person's struggle with issues with the army, which unfortunately do not make good, interesting reading. John Lawrence simply repeats the same line about a prayer to god over and over again which gets extremeley tedious after about the fifth time. There are far better Falkland Island and British Army examples.

D'oh! This IS a book about Robert by himself and his Dad, and I for one thought it was a good read. By all means, go and read other books if you want more battle stuff, but why put this book down? John Lawrence repeats that same line over and over? Don't you repeat certain things in your life? Are you always so mean-spirited in your life?
