  1. Hi everyone,

    I've spoken with the MODs and this message has been approved for me to post.

    I work at Ebury Publishing, and we are bringing out the paperback of Ewen Southby-Tailyour's 3 Commando Brigade next month. The book is the first hand account of 3 Commando's six month deployment in Helmand Province. You can find out full details of the book here: http://www.eburypublishing.co.uk/viewbook.asp?isbn=0091926963

    We have 3 copies to give away on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you have a UK address and are interesting in getting your hands on one, e-mail me at eburyblog@eburypublishing.co.uk[email]eburyblog@eburypublishing.co.uk[/email].

    Good luck!

    Ewen Southby-Tailyour's , One of the Most switched on Officer.s during the Falklands Campaign, and a nice Bloke. He gave some senior officers a hard time after the debacle at Bluff Cove. So I will enjoy reading this account of 3 Cmdo Bde .
  4. Glad you like the sound of it, Pararegtom.

    These three copies have now gone, but you can find out more about the book here or through any good book retailer.

    Just a quick post to say that the I read 3 Commando Brigade and it appeared to be a good book with plenty of first hand accounts.

    I did find the story jumped around a bit too much for me to follow but every page was enjoyable and I would recommend it as a good airport read.
  6. I do feel that if you have read 3 Para then you have read this book as well
