Written by: Dr. Helen Parr

Submitted By: Mr MK Baker

Dr Helen Parr is a respected modern historian , she lost an uncle ,when a young girl ,to the Falklands War ,her Uncle was ,and will always be a young Paratrooper . Her Novel OUR BOYS ,is a tale told well , of hardship ,and determination against a dug in enemy ,with massive weapon superiority . It also highlights the odd humour and comradery ,and how Paras deal with death . I know how accurate the book is because I was there ,at goose green in that never ending twilight battle . If you can handle it ,it's a great read .
