By far one of my Favorite books, Frasers autobiographical tale of his time in the 9th Battalion of the Border Regiment is a real 'can't put it down' type of book. Fraser goes out of his way to bring acrossed the Northern English charecter of the Battalion and his naritive of the attack on temple wood (he dedicates his book steel bonnets to the memory of his friends that died there, their real names and the name of the actual battle are contained in the dedication) is one of the most vivid and truthful I have ever read. all thought the author sometimes raves against modern views, I felt that this helped me get more into the mind set of the main charecter. The book is sad in places but often has a soldiers sense of humor about it (like falling down a well in the middle of a attack). I highly reccomend this book to any student of the Burma Campaign, or WWII.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
