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. That's much more like the ending in the book.
     
  2. Check it out on the DVD there are 2 endings (alternate ending and a humourous ending) in the special features section as well as a Saigon bar flashback :biggrin:
     
  3. Does anyone know where you can get the book? Ive never read it and would love to.
     
  4. Try the Library ? :biggrin:
     
  5. Or amazon
     
  6. I recall First Blood being an excellent book when I read it the first time. The book has so much more death than the film and explains the long build up to Rambo snapping. The pursuit through the woods is gripping and when the tables are turned and the hunters become the hunted, its hard to put the book. I the book you get a real feel for Rambo's constant and worsening pain and what drives him on. Also, that ending above isn't quite what happens in the book.

    I would recommend this book to anyone.
