Tommy Atkins by John Laffin
Book DescriptionThis work is the story of the "ordinary" English soldier, covering the years 1642-1966. Here lie some of the paradoxes of the English soldier. Successive governments misused his talents and his loyalties, and he died without complaint to save them from their follies.
