In a vivid and intimate memoire, Hennessey recounts his four-year term in the British Army, from fledgling lieutenant to battle-hardened captain. How he went into battle with bandanas and shades, and Penguin Classics in his pocket. The story starts at the end, with the bullets flying in Afghanistan.
