The Sandbox

Discussion in 'Multinational HQ' started by Red Shrek, Oct 30, 2007.

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. In summer 2006, Slate's partners at, Doonesbury creator G.B. Trudeau and editor David Stanford, launched a milblog called the Sandbox. Publishing dispatches from soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, returning troops, and home-front wives and parents, the Sandbox very quickly became a home for some of the best war writing on the Web, or anywhere else. This week, we are publishing excerpts from a new collection,'s The Sandbox: Dispatches From Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, edited by David Stanford.

    Today's excerpt begins with G.B. Trudeau's introduction to the book, which is followed by two entries: "Decency and Honor," by Capt. Benjamin Tupper, and "February 27," by "American Soldier."

  2. Doonesbury is in the list of sites I have to check every morning... the Sandbox makes for really, really good reading.
