Military Mindlessness brings together anecdotes, poems, and stories inspired by the eccentricities of the military mind, or lack thereof. From battlefield to barracks, from various branches of the British armed forces - army, navy, and air force -MoreMilitary Mindlessness brings together anecdotes, poems, and stories inspired by the eccentricities of the military mind, or lack thereof. From battlefield to barracks, from various branches of the British armed forces - army, navy, and air force - Military Mindlessness contains tales of bravery, knavery, courage, and bewilderment- all in the face of overwhelming and disturbing misorganization.

This updated American edition of what was initially issued in England in 1990, contains new material on the Falklands war between Argentina and Great Britain, and also coverage of the United States-led coalition against Saddam Husseins Iraq - a conflict in which casualty rates were higher as a result of friendly fire than enemy fire power.

Mr. Horricks tells this story with a humor that belies its seriousness. The theme and variations are simple enough: from the Boer War to the Iraq War, and as far afield as Indonesia and Egypt, mayhem as a result of mismanagement can occur at any time and any place. In short, Catch 22 did not describe an isolated moment, but a characteristic of modern military actions in an age of advanced technology.
