From the Publisher:
"Not For Queen and Country" is a different type of military book about the life of a soldier. Written without the normal gung-ho approach to soldiering, it is about the real feelings of a soldier -- the man beneath the uniform -- and his character. Edward Denmark gives a very candid insight into the basic training and the harsh regime that young men endure during the transition from civilian to soldier. He describes the horrors of war during the Falklands and what the soldiers face on the bloody and brutal streets in Northern Ireland.
