Looking for a few good books to get at Christmas as my parents always get me a few books. Preferably in the military/military history genre but open to suggestions. Also anyone know where i can get a copy of the stumpy and sapper book?
AFN Clarke, a Para Officer, wrote Contact about his Para platoon in NI in the 70s many years ago. It was done for TV. I watched it on Youtube some years ago, blissfully unaware that the ten-minute clips were out of sequence and it made no sense, but it generally gets good reviews from those who might pass an informed opinion. I recently found it for the Kindle. Not a bad read.
For a good read I'd recommend One Of Our Submarines by Edward Young, his autobiographical account of life in a submarine on active service during WW2. Gives a great account of what day to day life in a sub was really like.
