The funniest book I have ever read!! Suddenly, the memories from Basic Training, which have haunted me for 11 years don't seem so bad!! I laughed til I cried and drove everyone within earshot insane by frequently trying to read bits aloud through spluttered laughter (sorry Mum). Then passed it on to my dad, who served over thirty years ago, and even he couldn't believe how close to the bone it was!!
