Unlike other conventional war memoirs, this book comprises a gratifying number of self-contained stories drawn from the author's experiences and memories.
Some are long, other mere vignettes; some are moving and serious, others are light-hearted even humorous.
Some cover hard-won victories and success, others defeats and reversal; some describe acts of great valour, others incidents reflecting human frailties.
All however are worth reading and give a very accurate picture of war at its bitterest when men are drawn together and individuals are under that most demanding microscope of their fellow comrades-in-arms.
