Colin P said:Just finished “War without battles” it was a great read and gave me a better understanding of the tiny part I played in the reforger ex of 84 and 86. Almost finished “Fusilier” about the Welsh 23rd Regiment in the American revolutionary war.

I found it to be an excellent and gripping read.
Makes you wonder just what use the UN actually has.
Danjanou said:I enjoyed it too ( hard to get a copy mine was used on amazon and still paid a fair bit). Nice o see the "big" picture as opppsed to sitting in some farmers field in my mine tape trench.
Colin P said:I got to guard a bridge and then given hot coffee by young hot farm girl, invited in and spent some off time getting to know the locals... :nod:
As for "Shake hands with the devil" I felt like I was reading his confession, which given his religious background might have been just that and his way of trying to heal himself. Pretty clear he was an idealist who got into the deep end without really knowing how to swim and no floatation. I suspect even a significant reinforcement would have not mattered in the long run.
