    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.

        She who dared, and the detachment come to mind.

        I also remember a book about the sas, can't remember what it was called but it was regarding an op where they caused civil unrest by very strong means and later raids and assassinations of pira folk.

          Speaking of reading books as a hobby, is it true that this way you also improve your writing skills? I've heard that it works this way. The thing is, I am a terrible writer and I need to fix the situation because now I have to use global assignment help services all the time to get better grades at college.
