Inhaltsangabe: An in-depth study of the character and spirit of soldiers. This book takes as its starting point interviews with Chelsea Pensioners whose lives in the army span the 20th century, and who have seen action from World War I to Korea. Author Philip Ziegler is fascinated by the value that war veterans share, which the army must have inculcated in them: self-discipline, acceptance of risk and pain, patriotism, and solidarity with their fellow soldiers. Of course there is sometimes bigotry, narrow-mindedness and even blinkered stupidity. Ziegler also addresses the question of whether army values are still admired in modern British society. Above all though, this book celebrates the lives and attitudes of soldiers and comes to an understanding of the ethos that means so much to them.
A fascinating in-depth study of the character and spirit of soldiers.
Rich in narrative and anecdote, this involving, poignant book takes as its starting point interviews with Chelsea Pensioners, who saw action from the First World War to Korea, and whose lives in the army span the 20th century. Ziegler is intrigued by the values the veterans share, which he believes the army must have instilled in them -- self-discipline, acceptance of risk and pain, patriotism, and solidarity with their fellow soldiers.
But he also acknowledges the bigotry, narrow-mindedness and even blinkered stupidity that are part of a soldier?s life. Above all, he celebrates the lives and attitudes of soldiers, and comes to an understanding of the world that means so much to them.
