A witty collection that celebrates the strength to find humor even in the most challenging circumstances—with proceeds benefiting veterans.Britain's armed forces have a legendary sense of humor, dating back over generations of servicemen and women. The Laughing Soldier, aiding the veterans' charity Project 65, is a collection of jokes, along with messages of support for the troops, sent in by people all over the world. Contributors include serving personnel, veterans and their families, the general public, celebrities such as Alan Titchmarsh, comedian Milton Jones, and public officials including George Osborne, all inspired by the Armed Forces' strength and capacity for finding humor in the toughest of situations.With forewords by satirist Al Murray, a.k.a. the Pub Landlord, and ex-marine Mark Ormrod, the Afghanistan hero who lost three limbs to a landmine and bestselling author of Man Down, and illustrated with cartoons by The Comic Stripper, The Laughing Soldier's collection of jokes will lift the spirits of servicemembers and their families—and those who care about them.A donation is made to Project 65 from the sale of every book.
