Information
First edition, first print hardback of AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEWOMAN: The Making of a Female British Army Officer, by Heloise Goodley and published by Constable & Robinson Ltd., London in 2012.

The book is in very good condition (Clean yellow cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine), with only minor shelf wear to the illustrated dust jacket which is not price clipped. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

Héloïse Goodley was a City banker until she made the impulsive decision to join the British Army. She has since completed two operational tours of Afghanistan and currently holds the rank of Captain as Adjutant of an Apache helicopter regiment.

"An Officer and a Gentlewoman is the first female perspective on Sandhurst and the making of a female British Army officer.

When Heloise Goodley quit her City job and decided to attend officer training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, she had no prior military experience. On her arrival she was a complete novice: she'd never fired a rifle, she couldn't march; she couldn't even shine her shoes; she couldn't even iron her uniform.

An Officer and a Gentlewoman charts Goodley's absorbing journey through Sandhurst and on to Afghanistan and gives an insight into the life and customs at this esoteric and hidden institution. With wit and sensitivity Goodley details her experiences as a cadet and the painful transition from civilian to soldier. Moreover, she rejects lazy preconceptions and sheds new light on what it is like to be a woman in the British Army."
