by Edward Cartner
An amusing exploration of the perpetual power struggle between military officers and NCOs.

An amusing collection of real-life situations that will be all too familiar to anyone who has served in the military as either an officer or an NCO

In this, his latest collection of stories looking at the lighter side of life in the armed forces, former RAF officer Edward Cartner takes a humorous look at the traditionally uneasy relationship between officers and NCOs.

Although the officers are theoretically in command it is often NCOs who gain the upper hand ~ by fair means or foul ~ a theme that features in many of these stories as wily corporals and sergeants repeatedly display their ability to turn events to their own advantage,  much to the embarrassment of the officers who are supposedly their superiors.

Anyone who has served in the military will  be sure to recognise the situations described and, no matter which side of the officer/NCO divide they might have found themselves on in the course of their military career, they are guaranteed to find plenty to laugh about.
