A Book to Order
In this irreverent and provocative book, he gives us the full story: how British soldiers are sent off to war with some of the worst guns in the trade, how the MOD keeps financing useless toys (at huge expense to taxpayers), and how decisions seem to be made with an eye, above all, for the interests of British Aerospace. He shows how politicians and the top brass are hopelessly entrenched in yesterday's wars and pouring their talents and energies into making sure that money is wasted right, left and centre. "Lions, Donkeys and Dinosaurs" does for the military what "Not on the Label" did for supermarkets - it takes us behind the scenes and exposes the real ingredients whipped up in the name of 'defence'.
