"""He has just published his second book, Wig Betrayed, a fictional book about the tough world of military justice"""
A very tough world indeed whereby the slightest infringement costs you you're career.
Police officers from all three services, can get booted out under Service No longer Required or what is affectionately know as an Admin Discharge, on the slightest counts or accusations of incivility.
The rank and file in the Military get hammered with Section 69 (And no it as nothing to with a sexual position): Conduct Prejudicial To the Good Order and Conduct Of Military Discipline.
And before you all start with the sarcastic replies, those who can do, those who cant or know nothing, teach or talk about it.
Military life is no easy street and has no room for such where discipline is concerned.
