All the rage on ARRSE but wanted a more maritime flavour. Happy for anything you think would be of use. And no this is not just some officer thing, what could we be asking our junior rates, potential LH and beyond to read to stimulate and inform them. For all I would say On Killing and On Combat by Dave Grossman. If your business is about killing others (and it is the game we are in) it is essential reading. British Maritime Doctrine, yes I know official but I do think it needs editing again and for it to be in different forms for different readers. A bite sized Doctrine for Dummies to get the grey matter working etc. Defeat in to Victory - Field Marshal Slims autobiography. Inspired leadership and higher level organisational skills. Should be required reading at BRNC. Sensible answers please, I can always start a thread in the NAAFI if necessary.
