Quite a sad, yet uplifting book about the lives of 20 young men and women who lost their lives in Afghanistan. A timely reminder for us during the commemorations for the Anniversary of The Great War, that British Soldiers are still conducting their duties in dangerous and difficult times. This book is certainly worth reading.

The competition can be entered through Survey Monkey here.

Closing date for this competition is 14 December 2014

This is a good, well written book which handles a very difficult subject extremely well and although a sad read, it is one that is well worthwhile.

Early response, early efing response, I used to believe in the white bearded wonder, hoping, just hoping he might respond so I might retire to my shed once the hoard of locusts called my in-laws descend upon me for crimbo nosh up, but, no, yet again,
