    SUMMARY The Virgin Soldiers Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 1 · PDF DOC TXT or eBook The Virgin Soldiers Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 1It’s the curse of the book group isn’t it Someone suggests a book and you think yes that will be a light fluffy read something to make us laugh a bit light hearted and not too heavy or intellectual Well it wasn’t intellectual sure but light Fluffy A book about incompetent National Service conscripts sent off to fight in the jungles of MalayaThere were a few laugh out loud moments it’s true And the book had some potential to be the comic novel it was billed as Perhaps when it was first published in 1966 it resonated harmoniously with the experiences of others who had served their time in the immediate post war years There was a risue element too the inexperienced ‘virgin’ soldiers in the literal and

    SUMMARY The Virgin Soldiers Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 1 · PDF DOC TXT or eBook The Virgin Soldiers Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 1I like the character Dangerous Davies and remember seeing the movie based on the book as a child so read this out of curiosity but worried about its potential for racism and sexism given the time it was written and the subject matter Some of its attitudes are of their time and there is sex and violence but it is a thought provoking and interesting account of an ugly colonial war from the perspective of teenage conscripts At first I thought it would be a series of humorous anecdotes about life far from the front like Tracy Kidder's autobiographical My Detachment with a similar frankness about sex work and STDs However it is cut through with sadness and action seuences build along with the sex seuences Both a guilty pleasure and a thought provoking read

    SUMMARY The Virgin Soldiers Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 1 · PDF DOC TXT or eBook The Virgin Soldiers Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 1I love this book I have read it at least 3 times and it never loses its freshness It focuses on a small group of conscripted soldiers posted to Singapore during the Malayan emergency The boys are generally over sexed and under reuited They are also fairly callow allowing the author to create a catalogue of humorous incidents Against this humour there is the background of the conflict Periodically the author brings us back to reality with some real world trauma This is a book not to be missed

    SUMMARY The Virgin Soldiers Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 1 · PDF DOC TXT or eBook The Virgin Soldiers Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 1The Malayan Emergency was not classed as a War for insurance purposes Lester could have made a joke about stupidity of the name of the 12 year conflict which killed 6710 guerrillas 1345 Malayan troops and police 519 Commonwealth personnel and 2478 civilians In a world exhausted by WWII frightened of communism and wars in Korea and Vietnam the Malayan Emergency was the only conflict where the imperialists defeated the guerillas and left the country on a base to a stable future of independenceThomas's novel stayed free of the political issues and focused on the lives of British conscripts based in Singapore Most of the conscripts
