Brief and bracing, tragic yet darkly funny, The Odd Angry Shot is an award winning commentary on Vietnam, following a close-knit group of knockabout SAS fighters: their friendships, homesickness and fears; their practical jokes, drinking and fighting. Chronicling their experiences over one year, readers learn that their enemy is not just the Vietcong, but their superiors, the mud and torrential rain, and boredom. It is a reflective and brutal account of how war damages not only physically but psychologically, as soldiers readjust to home life
