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. Secret Soldier by Muki Betser

    A simple soldier's story, but one of the most fabled soldiers in the Israeli army. It is not a political book: indeed, Betser confesses that he came to the conclusion that "no people can rule another people without their consent" and that there is no "realistic alternative" to sharing the land with the Palestinians. A story about overcoming fear in battle, the setting out for which "takes a leap of faith to believe that you will survive". Betser tests whether the "psychological mechanism" that allowed him to charge the blazing muzzle of the enemy still worked after he was horribly wounded in the Battle of Karameh.
