Written by a Police officer who experienced at first hand a turbulent and violent decade, it takes us from his very first days at training school in 1978 right through to the late 1980s and includes national events like the year-long miners strike, the Falklands conflict, New Age Travelers, the Greenham Common Peace Camp and the 1987 hurricane. But it is perhaps the local incidents he attended that will make you either laugh, cry or shout out loud in disbelief as he deals with human beings and all their failings, from horrific car accidents to football hooligans he gives us a candid view of what its like to be involved in such incidents and how it can affect the lives of those that do. This book tells the story of his first years in the the job and how he very nearly got thrown out because he didnt measure up. Its a warts-an-all personal account, a real life Ashes to Ashes. othose
