Summary
"Sticklers, Sideburns & Bikinis is a fascinating trip through the words and phrases that came to us from the military but are nowadays used by civilian and soldier alike. The sources of many are surprising and their original use is often far removed from that of today. From "duds" to "freelancers" and "morris dancing" to "berserk," this book describes the military origins of words that we use on a daily basis."--Jacket
