After collage and Sandhurst, Charles Thoroughgood has now joined the attack Commados and is on a four-month travel of responsibility in Armagh and Belfast. The thankless job dealing with him and his males -- to patrol the tension-filled streets via weeks of boredom punctuated by means of bursts of horror -- takes them via occasions of tragedy, insanity, laughter and terror.

Alan Judd tells Thoroughgood's story with verve, compassion and humour. the result's an incredibly tremendous novel which blends sour human incident with military farce.

'Quite easily the most effective novels of military lifestyles i have learn' Jack Higgins
