The Queens Commission

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  8. *first post*

    Im 16 and hopefully on my way to Welbeck dsfc in September (AOSB in March), I was recommended to read this before going to the AOSB, Im hacking my way through it but I was just wondering if any of you know where I could get hold of this in paperback or possibly hardback?

    Thanks in advance, Auden
  9. JFC Fuller? a man who wasn't just interested in blitzkrieg but also in Nazism?
