''Give a man enough rope and he'll hang himself.'' Based on a true story, Richard Roe's reprehensible tale, gives a rare insight into what life in the British Army can mean for some. Unhappy at having his legitimate request for discharge refused, Roe attempts to gain early release by 'working his ticket', through disobedience and disorderly conduct. Refusing to be manipulated his Commanding Officer fails to punish Roe adequately, with the unfortunate consequence that Roe comes to consider himself unassailable. Suddenly brought to earth when believing himself to have killed an NCO in a fight, Roe is forced to go on the run. His journey takes him from the British Army of the Rhine, to the Guadiaro valley, then down to the Costa del Sol and ultimately on to Gibraltar. However, incapable of change and having failed to learn a lesson from his recent past, Roe seemingly kills twice more. Looking for a safe haven, Roe admits himself to a military psychiatric unit, but little does he know it, although any sane person could have guessed, his problems are only just more
