Six Campaigns: National Servicemen at War 1948-1960/Adrian Walker. Pen & Sword Books. First edition 1993. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. ISBN 0850523206
Between 1948 and 1960 British armed forces were involved in six overseas campaigns, in Malaya, Korea, Kenya, Cyprus, Suez and South Arabia. To provide the necessary manpower, peacetime conscription was instituted for the only time in the country’s history. In this book 23 National Servicemen, each of whom served in at least one of the campaigns, recall the hardship, excitement and humour of an experience which for all of them appears to have been an important, if sometimes painful, part of growing up.
