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. Not sure if a thread's already posted on this, but has anyone read a book called Desert Fire by Nial Arden?
     
  2. No.

    But funnily enough browsed through it in the library on Friday.

    Looked to me as if it was a fiction , masquarading as non-fiction.....similar to the Cage about a Brit Squaddie in Vietnam which was blown out of the water as a complete fabrication
     
  3. If memory serves, the general consensus on Desert Fire is that it's utter b*ll*cks.
     
  4. Monkey, thanks mate - I knew I could always rely on Arrse to ID a walter at 1000m.
     
  5. I bought the book as a holiday read - one of the things that puzzled me was he mentioned a special thanks to Land Rover whose vehicles kept him alive (or something like that) but only a few ex UN Rovers were mentioned and he opted for a Hummer!
     
  6. Kind of makes you feel all warm inside, doesn't it?! :D
