    Very much from a 'British Army' point of view but

    'Bombs Bullets and Cups of Tea' and 'Long Long War' are exceptional collections of first hand accounts by soldiers in the province, after action reports, personal accounts of combat and the aftermath etc etc.

    Both by Ken Wharton.

    I think he's got a third book out now called 'They're taking the kids indoors sir' but i've not read that one.
