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. As the title really , can anyone recommend any reading involving the RAC in recent history?

    I've been trying to find out a bit about Formation Recce in particular, went into borders yesterday and the only thing that I spotted was an Osprey book about the formation of recce units during WWII , which while interesting isn't really what I was after.

    It seems most of the books being put out about the current 2 wars are centred around teeth arms , yet theres hardly even a passing mention of cav. IIRC there is a decent bit in In Foriegn Fields, which I'll look in on later, but thats about all I can find. So , can anyone help?

    Cheers! :thanks:
     
  2. Had a look here?

  3. Might be worth checking regimental sites too: our OCA magazine always seems to have 2-3 'my war' books advertised in it. As these are usually privately published you could be missing a fair few
     
  4. Thanks for that , I'll see what I can dig up :thumleft:
     
  5. TANK magazine does a regular review on new books with an armour slant, Soldier and BAR also.
