by John O’Brien
A mysteriously ugly woman is found in a soldier’s bed. Hallucinations due to lack of sleep haunt a trooper’s mind as he tries to carry out his mission. Pints are drained, weddings are coordinated, and jokes are shared. Gunfire fills the ranges as Troopers fill the bar stools.
A collection of comical stories and anecdotes based upon John O’Brien’s own experiences in the Irish Army, Soldier Tales captures the hilarious situations found within one station of Army men. Filled with laughter, drinking, and various shenanigans, the novel harnesses the energy and joy O’Brien experienced through his career. With sharp wit and a conversational tone, O’Brien seduces the reader and doesn’t let go until the very last page.
