Superb book with all the right ingredients to keep you hooked and shouted at for being antisocial 🤣 He talks of local places and especially Lochcarron & Strathcarron & surrounding areas & for the best part of my life, lived in and grew up in Lochcarron and my Grandad was the Stationmaster from early 70”s until his passing. The Station House and surrounding buildings were kept in the family until recently. He’s done his homework very well. A MUST READ/LISTEN TO book 😎 One very happy listener for the third time!!!!

This is a FANTASTIC, EXCEPTIONALLY AND VERY DETAILED Book that really takes the listener inside the world of the VERY VERY BEST FIGHTING AND BRAVEST Regiments (both Australian and British) in the world and takes the listener back and forth in their very proud history including THE BIRTH of the most remarkable group of blokes in Military History. A ‘MUST HAVE BOOK to either LISTEN or READ’ even if you’re not particularly interested in Military history etc.

This book is bar far one of the best reads of this genre I've had the pleasure to lend my ears to or cast my eyes upon.

Stephen Fry is one of the top Three of my favourite authors and this book has shifted him to number Two. An awesome, spellbinding, captivating book that draws you in and has you laugh, cry (in a manner of speaking) and certainly left me in awe and wonder about the Mythology as it is a subject I know and understand very little about. I bought the book because Stephen Fry is the author and nothing more but now, I've a whole new interest to discover and learn about. If Stephen reads these reviews at all, I cannot thank him enough for the wonderful NEW JOURNEY I'm about to embark on.

In short - an awesome MUST READ Book!!!

I’m OLD SCHOOL and my favourite flavour has always been Motõrhead - right from the start. Been on the “piss with the boys etc.” Metallica came along in my circle of friends whilst skateboarding and for me it always has been 2 wheels and so I was the odd sod out ‘cause I was a BMX slave. Moved from Portsmouth in 1984 up to family in West Coast of Scotland for Work.
Anthrax came on the airwaves, my mates were overcome by the energy, the feel etc of the band and I TRIED SHUNNING new music because I’m old school. However, after much harassment from my Skateboard geezers I gave up and afforded half an hour to listen to “Spreading the Disease” and was totally bowled over. They, in my opinion are fresher, sexier and more energetic than two or three certain bands which I’ll not name as this is my personal choice other than to say SLAYER ARE NOT PART OF THAT EQUATION.

At the end of the day, Anthrax, like Motorhead (Lemmy R.I.P - and still owes me a “bar tab bill”) are survivors because the music boasts no bull***t - the music is as honest as the guys themselves. So chuffed Joey back home - that’s not to detract from the fact that Mr Bush is Awesome and should things go belly-up ever again, I’d suspect John would fill. In all, please please read this testament of one of the most iconic bands in “the heavy genre” and even better, do yourself a favour and educate your ears!!!! Thank you very much for the last 35+ years. You’re all awesome. God bless your lad as well 💀🤘🏼
