Unlikely Soldiers Book One: (Civvy to Squaddie)

by Deb McEwan

Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite – 5 stars!

“A fascinating and enthralling look at Great Britain in the 1970s as experienced through the eyes of Guy, a North Yorkshire teen, and Mouse, a Welsh girl. I had a marvelous time reading Unlikely Soldiers and am looking forward to the next book in the series. It’s most highly recommended.”

Cheesecloth is considered high fashion, young teenage girls are in love with the Bay City Rollers and the middle-aged are outraged by Punk Rock.

Naive Michelle Warbutton longs to see the world; already world-weary, Guy Halfpenny is desperate to escape from his.
Both have limited choices.
Their paths aren’t destined to cross until they join the British Army – where sexism is rife, some have to hide their sexual orientation, and political correctness hasn’t been invented.

Discover how lives are shaped, friendships forged, and loves won and lost in this compelling adventure of humour, passion, and tragedy.
