Over Paid, Over-sexed, and Over There: The Adventures of a Limey in the US Army

A bemused Brit who served with the US Army in the 1950s recalls some of the humorous highlights of a life among the GIs: the 330lb New York Giants football hero with whom he shared a double bunk...the Polish asylum seeker who knew the Uniform Code of Military Justice by heart...the short-sighted and excitable Greek...the Virgin Islander who made a habit of dropping live hand grenades...the company master-sergeant who tended accidentally to call out his own name in morning assemblies...And of course there's the author himself - who got the best job in the Army, complete with a Colt 45, eight rounds of live ammunition and permission to shoot anyone who got in his way.
