Patrick Hennessey is a graduate in his 20s. He reads Graham Greene, listens to early-90s house on his iPod and watches Vietnam movies. He has also, as an officer in the Grenadier Guards, fought in some of the most violent combat the British army has seen in a generation.
This is the story of how a modern soldier is made, from the testosterone-heavy breeding ground of Sandhurst to the nightmare of Iraq and Afghanistan. Showing war in all its terror, boredom, and exhilaration, The Junior Officers’ Reading Club is already being hailed as a modern classic.

Probably one of the best wartime books on Afghanistan.
A truly amazing story from Sandhurst to the bloody banks of the green zone in Afghanistan. Spoken and written by someone who has gone through an amazing and truly unique story in the British Army.
One of the best books I have heard/red.
