'Tribe' by Sebastian Junger

By The Cove February 13, 2019

In this short video Warrant Officer Greg Mathers reviews the Sebastian Junger book 'Tribe'.

Whilst Greg was not initially inclined to read the book, it was recommended to him by his then chain of command (the Warrant and Non-Commissioned Officer Academy). He quickly became a convert and found it to be an enlightening book and highly recommends it as an insightful read in regard society, soldiers, homecoming and belonging.  

Copies of 'Tribe' are available from both the Defence Library Service (DLS) (DPN only) and the DLS Digital Media Library
