"By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe."
Awhile back I read '8 Lives Down' which was a memoir by an English IED disposal specialist and I quite enjoyed it. Ive read a few memoirs and books on operations in the modern day wars of Iraq and Afghanistan but I was curious if there were any more memoirs of foreign (to me) participants worth the read?
Now my 2nd question, in my searches I came across the following trailer for a documentary on youtube:
[Probably not safe for work, there is a short stripper scene in the preview]
The only documentary Ive seen on Afghanistan was 'Restrepo' (which I highly recommend), is Armadillo worth finding? Thanks!
Armadillo is interesting, and not very long. I saw it not long ago when it was broadcast on TV in Canada. I'm sure not many people know much about what units Denmark has sent to Afghanistan, and the casualties taken in the fighting.
The Junior Officer's Reading Club is an excellent memoir by a young British infantry officer.
I'll second the Junior Officers' Reading Club - an excellent account. 'Losing Small Wars' by Frank Ledwidge is a very interesting account of how the UK's military/political establishment got things very wrong in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
