Army Rumour Service
Hello all, long-time lurker but first-time poster here.
I'm a currently serving reservist about to complete a Masters degree in War Studies and I'm writing my dissertation on the Afghanistan campaign, titled, "'Clear, hold, build': the evolution of counterinsurgency for the British Army in Afghanistan, 2001-2014". (I imagine some personnel on this forum from my unit now know who I am.)
I do not...
Just out of curiosity?
(I hope this is the right thread for this)
And I don't mean this in the "who's got the biggest dick contest", but just in general like training, deployments ect. I read a book about a Legionaire (Simmon Murray, an excelent book I have to say), from his time in 2 REP he had completed something in the region of 75 jumps which seems a lot and this was forthy years ago!...
Dr Jim has published a new piece in the Journal of Military Operations around C2. Some lovely tart comments in there such as
I know a number of Generals personally.... Of those, some are mediocre and some are inept. To be clear, inept commanders have commanded formations on international operations.
... it is quite clear there should be almost nobody in any HQ should be above the rank of Major....
