Good reads ...

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. Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on books written by Int Corps soldiers/officers about their experiences in units or in ops ... just finished reading The Operators by James Rennie, which I thought was brilliant, any others I should be prowling Amazon for?

    Await incoming, but hopefully a few good suggestions too ...
     
  2. try "The Secret History of SOE" 1940 - 1945 by William Mackenzie.....with 814 pages!

    Try 'MOD F102: the Secret History of the Cold War' by F N U Snu.
     
  4. Try "Chicksands or Bust!" by V Tilburger.
     
  5. The Operators: Inside 14 Intelligence Company - The Army's Top Secret Elite by James Rennie

    Looks true to me. 8O

    Sounds like most people that go through Chicksands.
     
  10. I read a cracking book recently about a guy who went Det. The name of the book and author are on the tip of my tounge, so as soon as I remember I will post the details.

    I'm not big on fiction.

    No, it's a small spare living room.
     
  14. Oh right. So why has Jim got an author hanging around his spare living room?

    I think we have a right to know.

    Well, seeing as how this is an 'Int' thread, I'm afraid I can't tell you.
