    There was a book written by a former captain (Ryan I think but I could be wrong) called Tough At The Bottom. Not a bad book and it contains details of the battle of Jadotville.

    The writer of Lebanon Diaries was/is a military policeman so you aren't going to get an infantryman's view.

    There has been very little written about some of the action the Irish have seen but those there are are mainly about the Congo in the 60s and Lebanon in the 70s/80s/90s.

    We also have a "Good Books" Thread that is well worth a look.

    If you want that, your going to find it very hard to extract it from the Irish Army.

    If action is what you prefer, looking at my bookself:

    Once a Warrior King,
    One Bullet away,
    If I die in a combat zone
    3 Para,
    Shoot to Kill,
    13 cent killers
    Get Rommel,
    An Ordinary Soldier,
    House to house,
    The killing Zone
    IN the company of soldiers
    The Green Marine,
    Berlin: The downfall,
    Bearded Brigands,


    to name but a few.

    From what i recall the Lebanon Diaries was not exactly a roller coaster ride of soldiering on the front lines, you will definitely be able to put it down. so keep that in mind before you spend your hard earned on it, not that its a bad book its just not what some including me would desire from a book such as this

    Do you have the titles of the boks written by former wing members ? Would be great to read about their exploits
    Well, no, I don' t know of any former Wing members who have written about their
    time in the Wing

    What I was referring to was that fomer and serving members of the DF
    have written books, just not about Wing service

    Brendan O'Shea, for instance (think he's a Commandant now) is somewhat of
    a history buff, and has a number of publications to his name, of a historical
    nature

    Serving or former ?

    The answer to both questions is yes, in any case
    Obviously, in the case of serving personnel, the content of such publications
    would have to be vetted

    In the case of former personnel, they would have to be mindful of the provisions
    of legislation such as the Offences Against The State Act and The Official Secrets
    Act, to name but two, when publishing books

    why wouldnt ya????

    I had a mate kick one of his gun during a RDF DC's course......

    the wing were doin the op for the shoot and this wingo was been given a once over of the 105, and said something disparaging about the Arty Corps.... My mate told him to shut up he was all talk and to get off his gun, your man was shocked, and realised that just because my mate was a bagger didnt mean he was gonna take shite off him. Said mate is now a Garda and a loss to the Reg......
