    Errrrrr Honey

    ....... I am not familiar with the book, but it sounds good.

    If the cover of the book did not show a Honey, maybe an M-3, Stuart.

    Neat little vechicle........... I would love to have one......

        this book stays with me in mind but much is forgoten mr crisp the author is spot on and that book inspierd one of my first dios ... not of combat but of soldeirs makin the best of a bad situation brewing tea for the third from the same bags . smoking a tailor made rolli livin on hard tac and bullie beef. A vantastic historical and pinical statment of what a few good men can acomplish together. I will hunt down a copy soon as I have that honey kit again and the desert calls to me I must re read this novel and revisit that dio but in a more up to date level of acurracy

          MC, is this the book you are looking for? If so, Amazon has used ones for $3.00.
          "You listen to the ol' Pork Chop Express on a dark and stormy night......"
