They lost one of the ramps in the incident, meaning my granddad and his fellow troops had to scramble ashore as best they could. It is critical that you continue to follow the government guidelines to maintain the health and wellbeing of your entire unit – and I am sure every Commando Dad is using his hour of exercise wisely, washing hands and only leaving Base Camp on essential sorties. Then, Sinclair says, he started to feel he wanted to contribute more financially while staying at home; he decided the best way was to train as a childminder. Neil Sinclair’s narrative is witty and engaging, and the book is written in a military style and uses army terms throughout. I can't wait to get the other books in this series, because they are fun, informative, a really quick read, but they take this seriously and are PROUD to be dads instead of all the "Oh no help!

Written by ex-Commando and dad of three, Neil Sinclair, this manual will teach you, in no-nonsense terms, how to maintain morale in the ranks and how to feed, clothe, transport and entertain your troops. It can take many different forms but at the root of it backup support means looking out for each other. Granddad and his unit landed on Juno Beach and were attached to Canadian troops who he followed through to Hamburg.

Not that I need a parenting book to be militarised for me to want to read it, but it was gifted to me and I read it cover to cover, even though my - at the time - unborn baby wouldn’t be encountering these issues for many years. Being a stay-at-home father, he says, laid the foundations for the project: "We made the decision, when we came back to Britain, that one of us would stay at home with the kids. If you’re worried that another dad, or your partner, may be suffering from postnatal depression, reach out to them. As a result, many women suffered through this challenge alone without any legitimate support from a doctor or support group, and perhaps not even feeling they could talk about it with their partner or friends. In my experience, the first half of term is always the most difficult because it’s when the troopers are most tired, as getting back into a school routine can be a huge shock to the system.

Brilliant dip in and dip out of book that's the perfect size to put in a pocket or backpack for refreshing when you feel like you haven't a clue what you are doing!I consider myself very knowledgeable on the topic, and there weren’t many new things that i learned, but it gave me a great structure to follow. I have read it from start to finish in preparation and just feel there are better books out there for this purpose. There's lots of great tips and helpful comments but I found it a little lacking; both in terms of specific assurance and support and secondly whether this was a general manual to keep hold of during your child's early years, or whether it was a pick up and read in one go. Packed with easy-to-follow advice and Commando Dad Top Tips, this book will teach you how to be the ultimate protector to your newest recruit.

Felt like a lot of padding for a very basic book where the military schtick cannot carry the threadbare advice. Chapter 5: Nutrition: an army marches on its stomach” explores teething, weaning and healthy eating for all the family. It is particularly refreshing that Sinclair approaches all aspects of parenting as a joint venture between two parents, with the emphasis on shared responsibility and mutual support. I am holding that paper in my hands now granddad and I just want to say a sincere thank you to you – and all of those involved on that day.

My favourite feature of this book is the way Sinclair has used his militaristic language and applied it to fatherhood. However you must keep the lines of communication open with your backup support and remember that you don’t have to put a brave face for them.
