Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just wondering if any of the Yanks on the site have read this "An Enormous Crime" by Bill Hendon and Elizabeth Stewart. Any thoughts opinions? I have just started reading it.
  2. I would be interested in your opinion of it.
    two excellant books that i have read, chicenhwk by robert mason (fantastic) and once a warriro king (i forget the author).
  3. If you like that kind of book, try "About Face" By Col. David Hackworth.
    Damn good read.
  4. Hendon & Stewart are right-wing nut-jobs who have done the talking heads circuit trying to pump out the tired old rubbish about the US prisoners abandoned in South-East Asia. The book is more of the same...smoke, mirrors and spin.

    Much better to read "The Viet Cong Insurrection Manual For Underdeveloped Countries" by Vo Nguyen Giap. It is at least believable.
