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. I've just finished reading all of Michael Yon's articles that the MoD Defence News links too. Well writte, balance and with no discernable political bias or agenda to push. Recommend to all ARRSE users!

    Invicta.
     
  2. Well the more I've read of his reports, he does sound more and more militarily if not politically biased. He still writes well and gets stories others haven't been able to. His bias does not bother me, provided he doesn't make up facts, as he is as much a story teller as a journalist. He is writing something of a journal which gives us a picture of what it's like being there. He is not doing investigative journalism, he is doing a first person account.
