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 have just been invited to another Book Launch, "The Dead of Mametz" by local Welsh historian, Dr Jonathan Hicks.This is a crime novel set against the background of the attack on Mametz wood during the Battle of the Somme in WW1, and if I can blag a copy and Auld Yin doesn't mind will review it on here in the near future, so stand by.

    No problems - looks like a passable read, so please go ahead. If you can't get one at the launch then let me know and I will ask the publisher for a review copy.
