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. Supreme Courage: Peter De La Billiere.

    Heroic stories 150 years of the Victoria Cross

    Outstanding read, picked it up on Wednesday night and have barely put it down. Even a bit about Beharry.

    Not too many long words and plenty of pictures :D
  2. I concur.

    Read this when it first came out, I am sure all the medics know the story of Chavasse, but I found it staggering.
  3. for all you german military buffs out there then "grenadiers" by kurt meyer is an amazing read!
  4. Great book.
    At school I was stuck on Sven Hassel books (Wheels of Terror, SS General etc) but there is a book I thoroughly recommend but I am burgered if I can remember what it was called - synopsis - German SS dudes leg it after WW2 and join La (Le?) Legion Etrangere and find themselves in Vietnam - it was fcuking brill, great skills n drills, ahh - the bloke was Hans Joseph Wagemueller I think.
  5. Devil's Guard. That's the one.
  6. The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer. Set in the Eastern Front. By chapter 3 you would think most people would have been dead. Tough fatherless.
