14 Denmark, Edwards Not for Queen and Country: A No-Holds Barred Account of Life as a British Soldier
United Kingdom Pharaoh Press 1998 190144208X / 9781901442083 Paperback New 6" x 9" 
Unread, unmarked. Firsthand stories of the author's life as a British soldier - from Army cadets on Merseyside to action in the Falklands and Northern Ireland. The shocking, disturbing reality is that against the enemy you fight not for Queen and Country, but for life and survival, the chance to see tomorrow. Indeed, this is a different type of military memoir. Written without the normal gung-ho approach to soldiering, Not for Queen and Country is about the real feelings of a soldier -- the man beneath the uniform -- and his character. Edward Denmark gives a very candid insight into the basic training and the harsh regime that young men endure during the transition from civilian to soldier. He describes the horrors of war during the Falklands and what the soldiers face on the bloody and brutal streets of Northern Ireland.; 222 pages
