Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Officer Recruiting' started by stripe, Nov 21, 2010.

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. Hi all,

    I've got my main board late January, I'd like to brush up on a little reading in the mean time. Can anyone recommend some decent books, or link me in the right direction if this has been discussed already.

    I've got the army/armed forces pocket guide, so I'm looking for something more specific to the role/history etc of army officer.


  2. One book I have read which is very interesting is

    The British Officer: Leading the Army from 1660 to the Present: Anthony Clayton: Books

    No doubt you will have seen this discussed about on ARRSE but nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed it:

    The Junior Officers' Reading Club: Killing Time and Fighting Wars: Patrick Hennessey: Books

    The following is a history of the British Army in general but again a very good read:

    The Making Of The British Army: Allan Mallinson: Books

    If you look at the 'customers who brought this item also brought' section there are plenty more.
