Excellent book and film
14 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

I loved both the film and the book of "The Virgin Soldiers", but I personally believe that "The Green Virgin Corporal" is a better book and would make an excellent film. The "Green Virgin Corporal" is a story very similar to the "The Virgin Soldiers" and was about a naïve corporal who served in Malaya about the same time as time described in "The Virgin Soldiers". The book "The Green Virgin Corporal" is available through Amazon Books
