If you are not ex-military or a military enthusiast, you may find the glossary at the back of the book useful!

I DO use a lot of them, being ex-military and an engineer and they are essential, as when your characters are ex or serving military you are going to get a lot of them in conversation.

I would also point out that if I used the EXACT language of such people, my word count would have been increased by about 25%- all Anglo-Saxon colloquialisms ;-)

I left in enough to get the flavour, but removed the rest, as they added little to the actual story!
