Mystery book

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. The mystery about this book is that I cannot remember the bloody name nor the author.

    However, I have a few details. The book is fiction, and tells the story of demobilised British servicemen - specifically a group of men from an armoured regiment - shortly after the Second World War. They find themselves working in a factory and recive such shoddy treatment from their boss - who sat out the war in comfort and safety - that they end up falling back on the skills they acquired during the war and end up commandeering a tank to wreak revenge. I remember this much from a number of reviews.

    Beyond this all I remember is that the book was published within the last two years (or not much more than that) and had a coloured drawing of a tank on the cover.

    Any help appreciated.
