More > offered so far. All perfectly intelligent, if short on education, they accept recruitment promises on pay, job training, and future prospects. Andy is white, Ashton is black, and Shahid is a Blackburn Asian. They do not expect that they will ever be friends. In fact they have to be – and close and vital allies.

Far from being trained as heroes, they come to see themselves as cannon fodder, face savers, and sacrificial lambs.

Their prospects, among other things, are to leave the army as a pale pink vapour in the air, or go home in a body bag.< Less
