This book brought back long lost memories from wars I had l forgotten about and had passed into history. He has a wealth of inside knowledge exposing the lies about the war in Iraq, when we all knew it was about OIL. His account of the Vietnam war is unsurpassed, I have read many accounts of that war mostly written by Americans which I took with a large pinch of scepticism. He was not afraid of exposing politicians who took us to war for their own ends, Bush and Blair spring to mind. What a callous pair of bas***ds they are. I am an ex soldier and many of comrades lie in graves because of them.
