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. Just came across this on amazon...

    Anyone read it?

    It's worth looking at the Amazon page just to wind yourself up over the oh-so-well-informed opinions of the various reveiwers including - worringly - the official Amazon one!

    Whining lefty gits...
  2. Well, wedgey. it looks like it's up to you an' me to put the world to rights as we stride off into the sunset with our balls aclanging, muttering to ourselves in a deep, masculine voice about these "worringly" (your word) Amazonian attacks on our manliness!

  3. Ah Bugs, these things just irritate me - everyone is entitled to their opinion, of course, but it seems that the relatively high profile of the army over the last few years has created a million instant experts on all things military. There seems to be very little balance in those reviews - it looks like a case of a bunch of people having their prejudices confirmed. Will have to buy it to find out I suppose 8)

    Fair one on the c rap spelling though :wink:

    Get the book from the library, read it and put your review on the site.

    I looked at the other reviews, as far as I can see all written by civvies.
    They know better than us...

    (My bold in each quote)
  5. Google brings up some interesting bits and pieces, such as this letter to Socialist Worker...

    Why do these people think that just because they get feted by the media that they are suddenly authorities on army morale?

    Bit of a Somolou methinks.
