"Steve Rudge writes in graphic and humorous detail, his life in the Grenadier Guards from 1966 to 1990, it shows how he matured from a 15-year-old boy soldier to becoming a senior Warrant Officer. He served in many places around the world and with numerous Armies; the reader will enjoy the truthful way that the book is written. Harsh and blunt language is used to describe his life for 25 years. This book also gives the authors views on the severe amount of stupidity and bulling that he was subjected too (sic) by those in authority, who had used their Rank and position to fulfill their own aims instead of looking after their subordinates or comrades." What a screaming hypocrite. He was my CSM in Arborfield and was a bully. He left the Army from Arborfield. Frankly, I believe that a 3 yr Crafty who's done a couple of tours will have more of interest to write about. A bloke called Les E***n took over him and was a breath of fresh air, making drill almost bearable on a saturday morning. Google'd Rudge to find out if he's living in a cardboard box, no joy!! BTW what is a SENIOR Warrant Officer? WO2 in the Guards?
