Bungled cover-ups, acts of blinding incompetence, miscarriages of justice, sexual escapades, and downright stupidity - have all helped to make the world's armed forces the much loved institutions they are today. Take an irreverent look at the public outcries and scandals that governments and soldiers would rather we forgot. From Julius Caesar's sex life and the frolics of Charles d'on, the fearless dragoon and noted transvestite to the sinking of the Kursk, Terry Crowdy delves into the darker reaches of military, vice and slip-ups. Packed with more than 70 mishaps, open this book and step back in time to see how corruption, bigotry, lust, vanity, incompetence and the occasional bout of insanity have coloured military history across the centuries.
