'First came the misery of training in freezing conditions for a deployment in a very hot climate. This was typical of the British army and so was the decision to send one hundred trained lunatics running around in dense jungle, armed with live ammunition. And they called this the solution?'

Warning Order Belize is a 'down to earth' and witty account of the adventures and misadventures of a young British Soldier in Colchester as he prepares for a tour of duty in Belize .
"I wasn't in the SAS, I don't think I killed many people and if I did it was an accident. These are just the stories of a hell of a good time with real friends and comrades and the life we lived, the pranks we got up to and the friendships we formed. I make no apologies for the fact that these memoirs are humorous, because that's simply how it was for me in spite of the fact that we were fighting a war against insurgents who would happily torture a man to death. And if war is a serious business at least we had a lot of laughs on the way… Like many soldiers I saw it for what it was - one long wild holiday - Club 18-30 with guns… but then I discovered it was more than that!"
Bombardier Sean Connolly brings us his 'laugh out loud' memoirs of The British Army on the Rampage at home and abroad.
