Roger Field was commissioned into The Blues and Royals in 1974 and served for 10 years. He saw action in the Falklands War – the subject of this memoir. Advised that, to reach high command, he must take life more seriously, he did just that and resigned to qualify as a lawyer working in the newspaper, TV, magazine and book publishing industries. He currently specialises in media law at New Media Law LLP. For the past 30 years he has written for national newspapers and magazines, including The Times, the Daily and Sunday Telegraph, Country Life, Apollo Magazine and a monthly antiques column for The Field. He co-wrote Rogue Male: Sabotage and Seduction Behind German Lines with Geoffrey Gordon-Creed DSO, MC and is the ‘secret’ co-writer of a Sunday Times military bestseller. He runs his own literary agency.
