by Edward Cartner
A junior officer's attempts to gain the respect of his subordinates and superiors never go according to plan.

Edward Cartner's stories are sure to amuse anyone with a military background but you do not have to be ex-Services to enjoy his gently humorous tales of the gaffes and blunders made by an inexperienced young officer as he attempts to convince himself and those around him that he is, indeed, in control.

As an RAF Parachute Jumping Instructor (PJI) attached to the Parachute Regiment, Edward Cartner enjoyed an unusual career, mostly spent training others (including Prince Charles and Prince Andrew) to leap out of aeroplanes and land in one piece.

His chosen career also allowed him considerable scope for making an exhibition of himself, and in his very funny books he takes great delight in cataloguing his less glorious moments (of which there were plenty) for the entertainment of his readers.

In this first book in the series he recalls his years as a newly qualified junior officer who often finds himself out of his depth when called upon to assert his authority and convince his superiors and subordinates that he has what it takes to be a military officer.

Laugh out loud funny in many places.
