Book review: Chinese Hoardes and Human Waves – Brigadier Brian Parritt CBE

I had the immense pleasure of meeting Brigadier Brian Parritt  CBE recently when he gave a fascinating talk on his personal experiences as a young gunner officer during the Korean war. Laced with humanity and humour his tales of the realities of conflict were a sobering reminder of the price of war. The book itself is a magnificent achievement, combining gripping personal tales, strategic analyses  and exposes of military errors and  a great and unexpected revelation of  his consequent life involvement in the complexities and nuances of military intelligence.

The author as a young man. Remarkably ,as Brig Parritt asked me to say, he has barely aged at all.
