Hors de Combat

Today I received a belated Christmas present in the form of book that was recently published as a result of discussions held at the Centre for the Study of Post-Conflict Cultures of the University of Nottingham.

This coloquium was attended by a number of former Scots Guards as well as commanders of troops that opposed us that night and makes for some interesting reading. I have added it to my list of books and is well worth the read.

I will endeavor to upload some of the accounts especially those from former Scots Guards including the Mike Scott, Simon Price and Angus Smith.

The book also covers a lot of issues such as PTSD and has a detailed chapter based on reflection and analysis of the conflict.
