So if you’re stuck for a last minute present for that special person you want to really impress, you could do worse than delving into the Adrian Weale back catalogue:
Howzabout the ‘Arrse Guide to the British Army’ by my very close friend Major Des Astor? It’s an hilarious, knockabout guide to what the British Army is all about in the 21st century which will teach you everything you need to know about bulling boots, walting with confidence, naked bars and skiffing. It’s a perfect Christmas present for anyone with the remotest interest in the military, humour and la conditione humaine.
If you aren’t worried about hilarious military antics and anecdotes, you might prefer a bit of practical help in getting yourself fit for the long year ahead, in which case I recommend ‘Fighting Fit’. More than 100,000 satisfied customers can’t be wrong!
And finally, if you know someone who needs a serious historical blockbuster, then look no further than ‘The SS: A New History’.
