Historical accuracy is lacking but a great drama
28 March 2018 | by vogeleyfamilySee all my reviews

I wasn't more than 11 years old when the incidents shown in 'The Last Post' were playing out but as a history buff I am very aware of the strife in Aden as the British were unwinding their overseas possessions. As a history buff and a retired field grade officer in the U.S. Army I saw the clinkers right off in the portrayal of the soldiers in the show. Yes, the folding stocks on the Sterling SMGs are never extended when in use. Yes, the troopers going into action failed to stand up the rear sight on the SLRs. Yes, there are other issues too, but the story surpasses them all. I've been the 'new man' myself joining a clubby unit and having to prove myself to the other officers and especially the NCOs. I was the newlywed who married and left for overseas duty immediately; my wife had to fly across the world to join me in a plane that had to make an emergency landing along the way to have duct tape applied to the tail to continue her journey. I was the Commander who had to make decisions that effected the lives of soldiers in my command. My wife and I first lived in a small compound of soldiers and their families in a foreign country with all of the stress and heartache that comes with this type of living. I absolutely loved this show. For once, put the military inconsistencies aside and immerse yourself in the lives of the show's characters. I watched all six episodes and found each one to be powerful and moving. I sincerely hope we get a second round of shows
