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:

    Paul Conroy has written a cracking book about the death of War Correspondent Marie Colvin. A great read and although we disparage journalists on ARRSE, this is the story of a very brave woman. Well worth having a go for a copy of the book. There are 4 copies up for grabs and as ever all you have to do is answer the easy questions correctly to be in with a shout. The competition can be entered here at Survey Monkey.

    The book has been reviewed by old_fat_and_hairy and this can be found here. Under the Wire.


    This competition will run until Sunday 7th July

    Still running is the competition for SOME UNHOLY WAR which can be found here for the next week. Try this one also.
