Book suggestions

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. I am begining a career with the RSDG in June and would love to learn alot more about the entire Corps before joining up. I have ordered 'With pennants flying' and Charles grant's 'Royal Scots Greys' to be going on with but would love any suggestions that people might have, especially coming from guys who will be able to point me in the direction of good accurate material. Cheers in advance.
  2. If you are joining the SCOTS DG (they seem to prefer this title to RSDG), you should read a book called "Main Battle Tank" by Niall Edworthy. It is all about the SCOTS DG on Op TELIC1 (the initial invasion/war fighting phase in Iraq in 2003).

    I can't comment on the accuracy of the book, but it reads OK and sounds about right.

    Any SCOTS DGs out there who can comment further?
  3. Thanks for the reply and the advice (both the book and naming). I will look out a copy.
  4. Get Back on FOLLOW FOLLOW the mood is good on there for a change!!!
  5. What does that mean? Is any of that the name of a book?
  6. He recognises my username as an abreviation of the one I use on a Rangers messageboard :D good observation skills.
