"Sir! Stop Laughing.This is war!" is a kaleidoscope of true stories and factual incidents, some comical, some deadly serious, and others incredibly politically embarrassing, with involvement of top government figures during the 1950s and 1960s. The stories involve actual terrorist situations in Cyprus during the EOKA campaign in South Arabia, particularly Aden, involving the build up to what eventually led to British troops withdrawing by sea with their tails between their legs. During the Aden fracas the authour had a exceptionally humorous special operations involvement with clandestine anti-terrorist weapons and tactics campaign taking terrorism to the terrorist, with previously undisclosed successful results. The East African campaign against the infamous dictator Idi Amin is also splendidly described with the author in the command position as a Field Operations Officer for the Tanzanian Army, and as a Colonel in charge of a Tanzanian Ranger battalion.This work is a cross between one real-life soldier's memoirs and accounts of his time in service to the British Army, sharing many of his own stories and those of his fellow soldiers, as well as personal recounts of a very monumental time in history.
It will not disappoint.
