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. halfway through this book. Anyone read this? views?
  2. Bit dull to be honest (esp given subsequent events) and it seems fairly clear that Andrew Alderson has quite a high opinion of Andrew Alderson. Other than that, it provides some (albeit highly partisan) insight into the mess that followed the invasion.
  3. enjoying it so far. I agree that he sounds a bit condesending to the "locals" and the anecdote about his kosovo tour death threats just sounds a bit much.
