This is Geoffrey Gordon-Creed's honest account of winning the war not by fair play but by being more ruthless than your enemy. But maybe what is even more extraordinary than his soldiering is the frank account of sexual adventuring that went with it. This is how the dogs of war behave when they are let off the leash.
