They Stayed a Solder

Although a factual and descriptive story in its own right this book is but a follow on of the author's first novel 'They Stood in the Door'.

In so writing he has retained many of the original characters, bringing them away from the brushfire wars of the 1960s into the turbulent confusion of Northern Ireland in the early '70s.

A difficult and challenging time for the British soldier, for he now found himself killing and being killed by his fellow countrymen.

However, his reaction and response to this, as accounted here, may surprise and shock many unfamiliar with the British 'squaddies' temperament.
