Assistance needed from Arrsers that read (both of you)

I'm off oop north next week with work so I'm looking for a couple of war books to read.
I've read Black Hawk Down a couple of times and like the visceral, minute by minute way its written.

Any recommendations for something similar?

Have a little look on the Book Reviews forum, Steven. There's bound to be something there that appeals.

Jihad by Tom Carew. One of the best books I've read for a while. Ex SAS running black ops in soviet run Afghanistan. Great insight into CIA and US long term strategies into the country and the drugs revenues. Enjoy!

Buy a Kindle. You can download the books that appeal to you.

Yeah he was outed as an SAS walt. Apparently the story is accurate of what he did apart from the SAS part according to some online resources. I just finished it and it is an awesome read. Always on your toes with it.

The only other book I'm Reading at the moment is The Hungry Hungry Caterpiller. Every bloody night until the little monster goes to sleep.

Someones going to tell me the author is a butterfly walt too!

Try James Delingpole's Coward books

Coward on the Beach D=Day
and
Coward at the Bridge (Arnhem)

Good laugh and reasonably accurate as well.

Just to come back to your subject for a moment; try 'Robert's Ridge' By Malcolm Macpherson. An account of an op during Operation Anaconda that went badly wrong. Worth a look. As is anything by Ken Wharton!

I'm reading Road of Bones by Feargal Keane at the moment. The story of Kohima told from both sides - fascinating stuff. A tad on the pricey side (£25) but it'll keep you going a while.
