Price: $3.61
Desolate, demoralised, trapped in a cold unfriendly hut with twenty other recruits: is this to be my life for the next two years? I cannot begin to describe how depressed I feel. Nothing has prepared me for this. I look around at the faces of my companions. Everyone appears shell shocked and dazed by what we are experiencing. There is no let-up, just a constant barrage of commands and abuse. I have now been in the army barely two hours but it seems like a lifetime. How can I survive another ten weeks of this so called basic training? Such are my feelings of desperation as I start my National Service.

    Having met Doug several times socially, I had concluded he was an articulate and intelligent individual with some interesting life experiences. It came as no great surprise to discover he had written a book. The subject matter, concerning his period as a national serviceman interested me greatly as my own father spent his National Service in the RAF but spoke precious little about this time of his life. Having bought and downloaded the book, I found it strangely captivating, and unable to put down. A definite page-turner, if that term can be applied to an Adobe document. My only disappointment is that currently there is no further reading material available from this little known author.

    "Two years for Queen & Country by D, Nickson." A very well written account of what it was like to be a National Serviceman overseas during a time of turmoil and danger. A thoroughly good read. I rate it 9 out of 10.
