Read in March, 2009

Lawrence shares honest, insightful experiences during his time in the RAF recruit depot relating to responsibility, command, fear & happiness. L discusses deep, difficult problems in a setting designed to be ridiculous and nonsensical. The generalities of life in a recruit depot, and military life in general, must largely remain static, even over centuries as the specifics change. I enjoyed his thoughts connecting a specific anecdote to a very broad, common concept.
