Riassunto: This book tells the tale of what it was like in the Canadian infantry in the second half of the twentieth century. It is told by a man who spent the first half of his military service as an "other rank" and the last half as a commissioned officer. A man whom the Canadian Government forced to give up a life that had been devoted to one regiment for another. It also gives some evidence as to how the emasculation of the Canadian Forces affected its members. This book should be on the bookshelf of anyone interested in a non-academic's account of life in the Canadian infantry from the 1950s' to the 1970s.'
In this book you will learn about: The life of a Canadian infantry recruit
Events in a battalion in Canada & Germany
What it was like to be a "DI" at Canada's RMC
Peacekeeping in Cyprus
Becoming commissioned from the ranks
Being a middle-aged junior infantry officer
Working at Canada's Combat Arms School
Career managing at National Defence HQ
Sinossi: John Robbie Robertson captures the essence of an infantryman in this rather extraordinary tale of his peacetime service in the Canadian Army. An altogether informative and good read.
