Gentlemen, I realize that out here in the colonies, as it were, we may not be as well read as our Imperial cousins, but I have to bring up the fact that I can think of only three novels having to do with the post Second World War RM that I have seen in my lifetime. They are; "The Conscripts" (1968) by Walter Winward, "For Campaign Service" (1979) by Christopher Hawke, and finally "Reflected Glory" (1990) by Carney Lake. Is this the lot or have I missed out on others now that WH Smith no longer brings out the Best of Britain to Canada? I have seen one brief mention of Lake's book in a thread on The Corps blog, but other than the two books written by Steven Preece aka Greendeath (which I have never seen over here and seem to elicit a lot of controversy) nothing else is mentioned. Now to be fair I have read a lot of RM history which I have enjoyed, however there is nothing like a good historical novel to bring characters and events to life. Are there any that I have missed, or will I have to continue to read novels written by former British soldiers, sailors and airmen only?
