Reviews of Military Blunders: The how and why of military failure
"Fascinating and informed… David’s objective snapshots leave no nationality entirely unscathed."
Ian Bruce, The Herald
"Just the book for armchair strategists to mull over during the long winter evenings – and a timely reminder that blundering on the battlefield is no preserve of any one nation."
"Hilarious and horrifying. Some of the disasters described by David scale the off beat comic heights of Monty Python… A graphic account of military incompetence from Roman times to the Gulf War."
Yorkshire Evening Post
"No holds barred… very, very funny and at other times quite frightening."
