Todays NZ Book

Shooting From The Lip- Lee Hughes

All he wanted was a snappy uniform, a girlfriend and a sports car.

There are easier ways than joining the NZ Army as an officer cadet, but he was young...

A candid tale of life in the NZ Army during the seventies & eighties. Definetly not the story the brass would like published, as the exploits of young blokes with excessive sex drives, fueled with cheap alcohol and testosterone are exposed.

As one who was there then- I have met the author and knew many of the characters in this book- I can vouch for its authenticity- although a few legends have been added to the true accounts!

I'm not revealing which is which- you try and figure that one out!
