I can highly recommend both the men and women on this forum to read this book. It tells the true story of a married couple, and there are a lot of facts about the husband's missions in there that gives a good insight into what it was really like for him during those missions.Originally Posted by from the back of the book
Obviously, since it was written by his wife, we get the full view and get to see what it was like from her perspective too, staying behind at home and listening to sometimes very ignorant people remarking on the wars her husband was fighting, and whose friends gave their lives for.
This is a rare book. I've not come across any other written by a serviceman's wife. Perhaps I've just not been looking hard enough... I came across this book many years ago, and have re-read it many times since. Partly because it's got my kind of sense of humour (blacker than the night itself), but also because it's just fascinating. It was also the book that made me decide to never ever get involved with a man actively serving...
