Introduction, (not in video)…
“I was not fated to be a warrior. A childhood illness left me lame for life in 1948 and I have limped for forty-five years. When, in 1952, I reported for my medical examination for compulsory military service, the doctor who examined legs – he was, inevitably, the last doctor to examine me that morning – shook his head, wrote something on my form and told me that I was free to go. Some weeks later an official letter arrived to inform me that I had been classified permanently unfit for duty in any of the armed forces.” J. Keegan, A history of Warfare.
