"Four Brothers in Arms" by Ian McGill is published

A remarkable account of a single family and their service in the British Armed Forces

About the Book:


The book provides glimpses of four brothers' experiences over a period of twenty years on the North West Frontier of India in the 1930s, throughout the Second World War, during the partition of India in 1947 and the Malayan Emergency in the 1950s as well as a rare insight into their mother's precarious isolation during the war in Jersey under German occupation. Malcolm was killed while fighting the Japanese in Burma; Dick was seriously wounded in Italy while commanding his battalion where he was awarded a DSO; Jerry fought at Monte Cassino; Nigel joined the Royal Marines, retiring in 1968 as a Major General.

More on S For Story
The final chapter moves on to describe Dick's life in Rhodesia, before that country became Zimbabwe. It is extraordinary that so many events and situations occurred within the same family who tackled all their challenges with the courage and tenacity so typical of their generation. The underlying thread throughout the book is the very close bond between them all during such turbulent years.

About the Author:

Ian McGill was born in Quetta in 1946. His father, one of the four brothers in this book, was then serving with the 8th Gurkha Rifles in the uncertain period before India's partition. The family moved to Zimbabwe the following year and soon settled on a farm. Ian joined the British Army in 1965 and his military experience included service with commando and airborne forces, operational tours in Northern Ireland, Kuwait and Bosnia and leading the Royal Engineers as their professional head (Engineer-in-Chief). He was awarded the CBE in 1998 and the Queen's Commendation for Valuable Service in 1999. He left the Army as a Brigadier in 2001.
