Utrinque paratus. Ready for anything. The motto of the famed Parachute Regiment (The Paras) covers war and peace, work and play and all to the highest and most exhilarating standards. And "anything" and everything is certainly covered in this book where the reader is taken, by some thought-provoking and often hilarious anecdotes, through training, life in the barracks, exercises, on operations, off duty, and facing the ultimate sacrifice. If you thought you knew The Paras... think again!
