What do you do to survive a Pandemic Lockdown?!

The General's Log is a light-hearted, comical account of life in unexpected isolation with young children. The General is confined to the house with her husband, the Lieutenant General. Along with their two young children; Private First-Class A and Corporal R.

To keep themselves amused during the lock down, the Troops engage a variety of exercises designed to enhance skills and pass time the quickest way possible.

They set tasks and exercises to keep themselves at the top of their game and to assure themselves of becoming the best military family in the country during lockdown.

The General's Log outlines Lockdown training in:

-fort building with couch cushions.

-sentry duty in the garage

-artillery training in the form of farts

-stealing contraband from the pantry

-misfiring in the latrine leaving surprise puddles

-and many trips to the infirmary due to excess accidents in the field.

Entries get more ridiculous and hilarious as isolation time increases.

"An enjoyable account of fun and frivolity during a very stressful and confusing time for young families... Well done on this excellent tale of misadventures..." Gillian, Indie Book reviewer
