A good read

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just finished reading Quartered Safe Out Here by George Macdonald Fraser, its a recollection of his time in Burma as a nineteen year old infantryman with the 14th Army, superb book well worth reading if you want a insight into what fighting the japs was all about, some of his views in the epilogue on modern day Britain written fifty odd years are also quite interesting.
  2. Yes. A cracking book - although I found the vernacular a bit wearisome at first. But, as you say, a gripping read.

    I'm now reading 'The Junior Officers' Reading Club' by Patrick Hennessy. So far so good!
  3. Just finished reading Forgotten Voices of D-Day by Roderick Bailey.

    A collection of rereminiscencesy by ordinary servicemen on that day, its a very good read.
