"Written in the first person, and reading authentically, it purports to record episodes in the life of a young officer, newly commisioned into a Highland regiment after service in the ranks at the very end of the war...Twenty-five years have not dimmed Mr Fraser's recollections of those hectic days of soldiering. One takes leave of his characters with real and grateful regret." - Sir Bernard Fergusson, Sunday Times
