This is a gripping tale of bravado, booze, battles and at times bitter failures. In an action-packed life David Murray escaped dead-end jobs, Glasgow knife-gangs and bullets in Northern Ireland.
His autobiography is a well-paced and plain-speaking account of a man constantly on the move – until the day God Himself finally caught up with him. This is a great book of memories charting Glasgow and Army life in the 60s and 70s. But it’s much more than social history.
