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. Just finished reading Spearhead Assault by John Geddes (again)

    I remember reading a book some years back by a support gunner about Wireless Ridge and cant for the life of me remember what its called.

    Any ideas?
  2. I'll have a look at that. The book I read was solely about the battle though.

    Thanks MD

    Scholey wasn't in the Falklands: you must be thinking of someone else.

    How about that ex-Para that was 17 deployed with three other 17 year olds and they all copped it. "Sod that for a game of soldiers"? (Sod That for a Game of Soldiers: Amazon.co.uk: Mark Eyles-Thomas: Books)

    Good book. Some ex-Para grumbles about it I heard but I couldn't fault it.

    You're not thinking of Excursion to Hell by Vincent Bramley, are you?
