The Call Up

A non fiction book by

From 1947 until 1963 all healthy British men between 18 and 21 were expected to do 18 months' military service. With over 60 contemporary images and many first-hand accounts, this book provides insight into this formative experience. For some, it was a time of friendship and camaraderie, others experienced hardship and brutality; and although it often meant square-bashing at Catterick; there was also active service in Suez, Aden or Cyprus with around 600 killed in action or accidents.
