In National Service, Richard Vinen cleverly and carefully unpicks the myths of the two 'gap years', which all British men who came of age between 1945 and the early 1960s had to fill with National Service. Vinen breathes life into an era which now seems remote and all but forgotten with an eye for detail and an great sympathy.
This book is fascinating to those who endured or even enjoyed their time in uniform, but also to anyone wishing to understand the unique nature of post-war Britain.
