Unofficial History

I've been reading this over the last week or so and it's been really good. I particularly enjoyed the interwar chapters, especially the punitive expedition in Waziristan, which reminded me of the stories my grandfather used to tell. It's all done in a very readable and entertaining style, so a bit of a page turner and well worth the time. There's some great scenario material in there too!

  1. One of the most understated, yet successful generals Britain had in WW2. His memoirs are a good read, although he's a little disingenuous about the contribution made by the African divisions in Burma.
